It happens to us all: we lose a chicken and no-one understands how sad it makes us feel.

    You tell family and friends and see their eyes glaze over. You try to find somewhere to leave your tribute and can't find it.
    Today I lost Henny Penny.

    Well, there is a place. Click link below

    This is a place where people do understand. Chickens may be bottom of the pecking order, but their lives are worth talking about.
    If you keep chickens as pets you'll know that they become part of your family. They have personalities, characters, likes and dislikes, and they provide hours of entertainment - as well as gorgeous fresh eggs.

    So yes, the loss of a chicken is just like the loss of any family pet. There's nothing wrong or unnatural about feeling sad.

    This place is like over the rainbow bridge for chickens.

    Ironically enough about thirty minutes after creating my account today, I went to visit the chicks and lo and behold my favorite little easter egger was lying in the hay, unmoving. I'm still crying :hitI'm sorry for your loss

      Oh no! I’m so so sorry. Any idea why?

      My parents think that she was sick - all she would do would sleep in your hand even in the middle of the day. I'm feeling better about it now but it makes me dread another death which of course are inevitable.
