Last Monday, one of our Cuckoo Marans died. The coop seemed rather quieter (even though she was always picked on and the lowest because she brooded once). Now yesterday, the top hen in the pecking order died. The coop is reeeally quiet. She grew up with 3 other Speckled Sussex and all four of them were really close. They all slept in boxes in a corner, all near each other but my mom thinks that she got her out before they saw...do they know she's gone? Are they sad?
