Name 15 awful things that can happen to a chicken owner, with red mites in the coop being the Worst Thing Possible, and I've been hit with absolutely everything the past year.
I'm so fed up.
Exhausted physically, mentally and financially.
It's not much fun anymore, even if I love those chooks with all my heart.
Death #4 since the beginning of July in progress this morning, my Sweetie is in a coma and will cross the bridge today after weeks of declining health. I'm thinking liver failure as her face is yellow, but for sure she is anemic from the blood-sucking vampire mites.
I'm not sure I even want to go on being a chicken mama, since I obviously stink at it.
