One of my first baby chicks from 2008, Lady Rosalind died today. She was fine, her comb was a bit pale, but it does that from time to time, so I wasn't concerned. Yesterday for some quite unknown reason, when I put new water in the pen, I picked her up and told her she was a good chiken.
This afternoon, after running some errands, I came home went out to give the chickens some treats, and there she was... dead as can be!
Here are a few photos of Lady Rosalind as a Memorial.
