Recent Chicken Death in the Flock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

As some of you may have seen, I posted a couple of threads regarding some peculiar behavior with one of my hens. That was Blackberry, my username's inspiration and former chicken of the month. I found her last night; I assumed that age caught up with her, she was five and a half. Her article is available in my signature. This is a very hard loss for me and the rest of the flock, she was a great chicken.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your sweet Blackberry.    :hugs  Such a pretty girl.   It sounds like she didn't suffer, which is a good thing.  Sometimes we just don't know what has happened.    You are always going to have her memories to reflect on.

I'm so sorry about Blackberry.  I know how hard it is to lose a good chicken.
