    What a cute little guy. Hopefully he/she will be just fine. Even if it is for the stew pot.

    Doesn't matter if they're eventually destined to chow. The point is treating them as kindly as possible up until that point. :) I'm glad to hear all the effort you put in, free. It gave me a smile.

    Well, shoot, he died today. I didn't think he would make it when his butt was all pasty again this morning and he hadn't eaten anything, and wasn't peeping anymore. Shoot. I don't like seeing baby anythings die. Shoot.
