    Well everyone this is the 3rd chicken Ive lost in 2 months.....

    This morning I went out to feed and do normal chairs with the chickens (favorite time of the day [​IMG] ). It was good until I only counted 5 of my big girls when there are supposed to be 6.....I called and called which is NOT normal because she was a PIG and was always first at the gate.....I went to look in the hen house thats when I saw Bertha underneath the roosting bar (I have NO idea how it fell on her) It fell right on her neck and must have killed her instantly! [​IMG]

    I just hope she died in peace. I have no idea why I have lost these chickens in these fatal situations. [​IMG]

    RIP in Bertha..... [​IMG]

    I am so sorry about your loss, I see she is a golden comet and I don't know what I'd ever do without my golden comet. So sad. [​IMG]
