Remembering the Passed

A memorial for your beloved birds who have passed.

    Hey, guys. I know every one of us has seen a bird pass away, whether it be of age, sickness, or predator. This article is a memorial. Feel free to post about your beloved birds who have sadly left us.

    I'll start it off. I have seven chickens, all silkies. I used to have nine. This article is the memorial, of sorts, to one of the chickens who passed away: Hamlet.

    Hamlet passed away today. I walked outside to see him on his side, flopping and opening his mouth like a fish. I quickly rushed him out, and he passed away in my arms. My brother and I were devastated. He wasn't even sick. It is a very sad day today, and unfortunately I don't have more to add on the story since this is happening right now. Hamlet was a very "chill" rooster, he wouldn't run from you if you went to grab him. He had beautiful, shiny green feathers covering his lovely black feathers, and his little red bow-tie on his No-Crow collar finished his "gentleman" look and appearance. He was very kind to the ladies, and very promiscuous! He will be missed by everybird.

    Like I said earlier, feel free to post about your loved birds who have passed. Everyone's story is accepted.

      He choked to death, and I was too late to save him.
