As many of you know, Stripe the Chick died yesterday. She had a short, bitter life. Her mother died when she was very young, and Stripe entered the foster care system with her brothers and sisters. Sunday she was inexplicably and brutally attacked, and spent her remaining days in the intensive care unit, where she died Tuesday. Stripe was laid to rest in a small, private ceremony near the area where she was born
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to your local Humane Society.
Below is a video with Stripe, and her brothers and sisters. She has the brown stripe on her head, the second chick visible in the video. Stripe had a short life, but she was loved more than almost any chick ever was loved. Stripe will be missed and remembered.
