Today is a very sad day. I lost my first chickie baby that I was really close to. Blanche was my easter egger that I bought when she was a few days old. At first I didn’t like her because she would always peck at me when I went to move her to clean the brooder. But after she got in the backyard she was one of the ones that would always run to greet me and eat out of my hand. The sliding door on the coop malfunctioned this morning and she happened to be in the wrong spot. It’s very sad, because I have become very fond of the “12” and she was one of them. I guess I shouldn’t get so attached, but they are becoming like my pets. I love most all of them and it just kills me that one got hurt. I will be working on that coop door today and making sure any further doors are safe and sound.
