Some of you that follow me on Facebook and Instagram might remember a sweet little chick I brought home from one of my Scratch and Peck Feeds ambassador events. The event was held on a Saturday, at a farm store that had just received a new batch of baby chicks.
But one wasn’t doing well. She was listless and peeping. The employees told me they wouldn’t be able to help her the next day, as the store would be closed. Of course I had to take her home! To see a video of me syringe feeding her, click here.
Lucky actually bounced back well once I got her home and started some emergency TLC. With regular feedings of egg yolk and vitamins, she appeared to be making a breakthrough, so I decided to get her a couple of friends. That’s when Poptart and Philippe entered our lives! #ChickenMath, amIright???
Over the next couple of weeks, Poptart and Philippe thrived, but I noticed something wasn’t quite right with little Lucky. She didn’t grow normally and I knew there was something wrong. I tried so hard to save her but she flew over the rainbow bridge. She died very loved by the Chickenlandia family!
Lucky has gone, but Poptart and Philippe are still here warming our hearts. Even though I already have a rooster, I’m hoping to keep Philippe. If it turns out I can’t, I’ll send him to live with my very good friends over at Barclay Farm Retirement Sanctuary. (If you would like to make a donation to the Barclay Farm, click here!)
So, it’s been a Spring of many ups and a few downs. But I have some very exciting news! My new Youtube Channel has officially launched! Check out this fun vlog about Poptart and Philippe by clicking below. Make sure to like my video and subscribe to my channel for more chicken fun. <3
