    My sweet, half-blind hen Lil'Bit is dead. Something killed her in the woods out behind the coop.

    I'm heartbroken. I know it's not right, but I've always said a silent prayer that when something came to kill my chickens, Lil'Bit would be spared.

    I'll be lost tonight when I go out to lock the big birds up and Lil'Bit isn't waiting for me to put her on the roost, right next to my roo, in her usual place. She always said "thank you" when I sat her down there. Not being able to see well enough to get on a roost by herself, she learned real young to wait for me to do it.

    R.I.P. Lil'Bit. You'll be sorely missed.

    Oh, I am so sorry for your loss. It's hard enough losing any birds from your flock, and even harder to lose a favorite. She was such a gorgeous girl! [​IMG] I'm sure you gave her a very happy life, hopefully that will give you comfort in this hard time. Lots of hugs for you. [​IMG]

    I'm just really sad right now. It's life and I know that. At least I know that Lil'Bit had a good life, with many a treatfest and dustbath.
