    One of nine of my Auracanna chickens died. I have no idea what happened. Had fresh water and food. Sometime in the day she died.:Cry:

    Here are some pics of the girls. I let them out in my garden almost evey day. They are so spoiled. I got the in March right after my precious Kika died. They have been very entertaining. The black and white chicken with the red comb is China Doll and she is the top hen.[/ATTACH][/ATTACH]

    I think it is one of those things that just happens. I still have eight others to spoil. They all have their own personallity and I love to watch them do their thing. It is a great way for mr to unwind at the end of the day.

    Loved the kitty pics. SOOO cute.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your chicken. There are so many poultry diseases that it could be anything.

    Now on another note...your gorgeous cat seems to be looking at you, and waiting for you to turn your back so he/she can grab lunch...lol...

    Just kidding...

    So sorry to hear about your loss. I love chickens! We had a pet Rhode Island Red when I was growing up and she thought she was a dog. You are right! They are relaxing just to watch them out doing their thing. I love when they take their dust baths!

    I like the cat just lying in the sun watching.

    I am so sorry for your loss, whether big or small, all animals leave a forever impression on our hearts, and it's always hard :Cry:

    Is the beautiful cat in the picture a bengal?
