sad day...

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 of our 7 week old chicks died unexpectedly :( it had no signs of illness or 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 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's alot to think about for a child. especially for one so sensitive and loving.

follow me...i follow back!!!


  1. Yes, this is very hard. our kids all went through this here as well. I have to say, it never gets easier. But it is a part of homesteading. Prayers for you little man! That he always remain sensative and loving.

  2. I'm sorry for your son's loss. My son is also super sensitive and doesn't understand why he can't save all living creatures!
