    It was awful. She stuck her little chickeny neck between the fence gate as I was closing it. So sad. All three of my kids were there as well.

    Oh, that is so sad! My little sweeties get underfoot and I have come so close to doing almost exactly the same thing! I am sorry for you and your kids!

    Thanks! I am sad, but we did go ahead and process her. It felt more honorable than throwing her in the trash. She was such a sweet chicken. She's in the fridge. RIP little nugget...

    The funny thing is after growing up in 4-H, I really did just want a few little urban pets for eggs. I had no intentions of using my birds for the dinner table. Tomorrow we will say a special toast at dinner.

    Quote:We always give a toast to our birds. Good on you. The kids will appreciate that.

    As a little gratitude prayer for Nugget:

    May she nurish and fill your bodies with her life as she filled your spirit with joy during her life.

    Live long in spirit, Nugget.
