Awww...my heart breaks for you. :pout:
A few years ago, ironically the summer my dad was ill and eventually passed away, I found a nest in the electrical box on the side of the house. I told dh about it but couldn't see into it to verify if there were eggs. He "took care of it" and I never got a chance to check for eggs. I would have been fine letting the family live their life and when they left for the winter, "relocate" their house, but he got to it too soon. I was crushed and it still upsets me because there were babies... :verysad:
I'm such a hopeless animal lover. I worry that if we move that the two bunnies that have lived under our shed will not have nice people to leave them be like we do..

aww... I'm so sorry to hear that :pout:
I can understand your feeling... I used to have birds at home too but they all passed away after a few years :crying: But the good memories will still be there, so that's something to cheer you up :wink:
A hearty blessing to your little hatchling :pray:

Aw, I'm sorry :muah: Souls never die :) Especially in our hearts. Do you know what may have caused the death so that if the birds have another fertilized egg it may be preventable, so therefore more likely to survive?

I don't think my birds were meant to have children. They've laid over 50 eggs in the past year, and this was the only one to hatch. It looked kinda scrawny when It was born, but It started growing and plumping up quickly. Its little feet were full developed and Its wings were developing well, too. Yesterday morning It was making all kinds of noise and wiggling around. The one thing, though, was that It always seemed to have trouble breathing. Last night I found Baby on Its back in the nest, so I carefully rolled It back over on Its stomach. This morning I didn't hear anything and when I pulled back the blanket from their cage, Baby was on the ground, not breathing. :(
Anyway, sorry I got off on a tangent there. I don't know what caused Baby to die.

:hug: Aw, don't despair! There are still lots of chances for them to have babies who survive. If it isn't meant to be, then it isn't meant to be, but there's still a chance. 1 bird out of 50 is still one bird, even if it didn't stay for the long haul. All I can suggest (because I am not educated on birds) is to research gestation and upbringing of baby birds. That will probably help you in the future, if you don't know those things already.
I'm sure the baby is having a good time now, wherever he is on his soulful journey.
