I mean I am not actually sure but for some reason I think that. I seem to vaguely remember people giving it to seagulls to kill them.
Those people sounds like skum :( It is probably very easy to over dose a bird on a human medicine. I know even in humans you can die from paracetamol if you take 10g+ in a short time. All drugs can be dangerous.

She is really not doing good at all. Now she is falling asleep with her head laying to the side :(


I am headed out. So stressful.

She is no longer attuned. We aren't going to medicate.... And as I update this thread she has stopped breathing.

Poor little girl.

The worst part is that this weekend we met our new dog. It was such happy and exciting news. We got home and everything just fell apart with Nova. I feel guilty and sad. I also feel excited for our new dog..so emotionally I am a wreck.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Please don't beat yourself up about this - you gave her a life of free roaming and chicken friends, and let her live with as much or as little interaction with you as she desired. You gave her freedom and choice, and I'm sure she appreciated both deeply.

Please don't blame yourself. It sounds to me like you gave her the best life she could have had. Just continue to love her, and be thankful for having her in your life. You are both in my prayers.

I'm so sorry, I know all to well about beating myself up over the loss of my treasured companion animals. They are and always will be the most important part of my life.
Your love and compassion for all that have no voice, and choice in this life runs deep, this is why you are hurting, you want for them to not hurt and be happy. You have done just that...

In this life experience we have to be strong, and learn let go of that which we have no control of.

The passing of Nova was her time to go. Your new dog has arrived just in time to help you heal, Give your new companion an extra big hug in honor of your Beautiful Nova, she remains forever in your heart.
My sincere condolences .

I appreciate everyone in this forum. It is so good to have a place that really understands birds.

One of my jerk head colleagues nearly burst out laughing at me when I was dealing with Rodger's broke hip several years ago. Rodger was also a chicken. It made me feel like I am all alone.

Everyone here is so wonderful and really helps me not feel alone. Chickens are beautiful and wonderful companions! As loving as any other pet.

Thank you so much everyone. These little words of support have a massive positive effect on me.

I will never understand why it baffles so many people to find out that others have such compassion for animals they clearly think less off.
An animal is an animal, what´s more, these are our family companions and we treat them as such: family. We love them unconditionally and care for them when they are in need.
I also appreciate the Avenue so much for this, being able to talk to everyone here and be understood is a blessing ❤
