Mama Chicken is free ranging in the great pasture beyond.
She died about 12 hours after the last post.
We gave her a big shot of AB's, but she was just struggling to breathe so much. She would not eat or drink. I think she was just exhausted and could not fight any longer.
I told E about her passing. He laughed and giggled like he did about Nigel. He won't get it until he goes up there and sees for himself that she is not there.
I have two others that are in particularly bad shape.
I think one may pass, but am not sure. The one I really thought would die last night, pulled through.
We are still medicating them.
I think though that most will make it. But because they are now carriers, this will happen again. I can't add any new birds to this contaminated flock.
It's been a weird few days.
Lot's of unexpected sad news, all around here lately.
Life is short.
and so so precious.
I am going to try to live each day and concentrate on our most happy things, and not dwell in the wishes of would haves or maybes.
I love my life and the choices I have made, the friends and family I have.
Life, it's the only one you have got, and if your not happy, change that.
