i read a quote on another blog that said, "when you keep livestock, expect to have dead-stock"...well, yesterday was a sad day around here...one of our 7 week old chicks died unexpectedly :( it had no signs of illness or injury...it just died! my poor 8 year old son was the one to find her (everytime he comes home he runs to the coop to see them). this was kinda the first time we had to have the "life & death" discussion with him, he is quite a sensitive boy...so it was hard. he gets really attached to all the animal. it broke my heart when he told me that he wished he could of saved her. i told him that sometimes these things just happen...and we should be happy about the other healthy chicks we still have. poor kid...it's alot to think about for a child. especially for one so sensitive and loving.
