I found her dead on her perch when I went out to care for them.

It is so different to have a chicken die from a disease then when you butcher them. Because of money issues we have had to butcher many of the chickens I have and we were planning to get rid of Otis this way as well, but to loose her this way is just so different.

I'm so sorry to hear that :hugsHopefully she passed in her sleep and without any suffering.  It is amazing how attached we can get to chickens, they are such amazing little creatures. Rest In Peace sweet Otis! I am glad she was at least happy up until the time she passed, at least you know she had a great life while she was here! :hugs

Thank you very much. One of the best things about having chickens is seeing them happy and excited.
