RIP, baby chicks

It's a sad day at the Chicken Mom household today. Have I told you, I'm doing a series of posts on my chicken raising experiences over at EnviroMom? Well...today we had our first setback. You can get the whole story here. I think I'm going to go comfort myself with a bowl of Froot Loops.

What a terrible way to start your day. Hope the next batch of chicks makes it ok

Oh no....good save, Mom. Here's hoping the next box of chicks arrives healthy, fluffy, and peeping away.

That is so sad. If you have any more trouble you ought to check out the feed store here in Hood River. I know it is a little far but I remember them having lots of different breeds when my parents got their chicks years ago.

Oh, how horrible. Poor chickies. You are so good to do all that explaining with Sidney, though. Extra mom points for that one. :) *and I have to say that comment on EnviroMom about the 2-year-old who already had reincarnation figured out? A little creepy . . . .

Um, that would be Sydney with a "y"--I knew that. :)

That doesn't sound like the best outcome for the first try with the chicks. At least the company sounds good and they should make extra sure that the next ones make it to you nice and healthy. Good luck with the funeral.

I had no idea one could mail order chickies. Good luck with the replacement shipment.

That's so sad. Poor chicks. When I was in the fourth grade, our teacher brought an egg to class one day. We incubated it and watched it hatch. One of us got to take it home. The girl who won him had a cat that killed him within the week. I was so sad!
