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.

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.
