More Sad News

Daniel found One dead yesterday — our young rooster, who was the first chicken to ever hatch at the Manor. Like Bebelina’s death, this one was sudden, mysterious, and totally unexpected. There was not a mark on him, and no previous signs of illness.

We’re sincerely hoping this is the end of it. The pen, house, feeders, and waterers have gotten an unscheduled cleaning, and if we lose a third bird I’ll be calling the state veterinary office about a free necropsy.

Oh and then I got home from work and the handle broke on the toilet.

This week is fired.

    Aw no, the poor little creetur, and poor you. :( Of course rats and roosters are different species, but it does sometimes seem like, with little animals, they are absolutely okay right up until the moment that they’re not. Sometimes there’s no warning at all.

    Oh no, I’m sorry. May the weekend be much better, including tomorrow.
