Hi, all. I am absolutely heartbroken today. My sweetest hen, Joya, a beautiful Buff Orpington, died today. She has been in and out of the vets office the last couple of weeks. They think that she ate something toxic. However, the last two weeks or so, she seemed to be getting better. Her color was returning and she seemed more herself. She was eating and drinking better and seemed more like her spunky self again. However, over the last few days, she had become pale again and was panting nonstop. She seemed more lethargic. I had a vet appointment scheduled for tomorrow, but this morning she seemed so sick that I put her in the car and started driving to the vet. She died on the way there. Her heart just gave out. I like to think that she went peacefully. I am going to have her cremated so I can keep her ashes near me. She was the sweetest hen. She would come running whenever she saw you, loved to snuggle, and would make the sweetest little noises when you stroked her back. You should have seen how much love was in her eyes when she looked up at you. Yesterday, her last day, she spent the day outside with her sister, stratching around and rolling. We also indulged her with some ice cream. I am so heartbroken. Even though I know that there is nothing more I could have done for her, I feel like I should have done more. She had only just turned two and I just want to know that she was happy and felt loved during her short life. Does anyone have any tips on how to get over this loss? I am an absolute wreck and can’t seem to move on.
