    This is her when she was a baby. [​IMG]
    She was such a sweet little girl, she did turn out to be top hen in the end. And she ran a tight ship with all the others she was just 3 years old and one of my original flock birds. I will miss her dearly![​IMG]

    She was adorable.
    This heat is just horrible...seems to be hitting everyone. We aren't getting a lot of rain either.
    The best gift we can give our friends is to make sure they know they are loved....no matter how long or short their time with us was.

    [​IMG]. [​IMG]. I am so sorry.. I lost 14 the other day to a heat index of 128 and 99% humidity and I know the heartbreak you feel. Just know that she knew you loved her. We do everything we can short or climate controlled coops.

    Thankyou everyone! This is a very hard time for all of us everywhere and our little flock families, [​IMG] to everyone that has lost some of their birds/pets or anyone to this unbearable heat! My coop is under a huge talcum tree and is really the coolest place in the yard and it still wasn't cool enough They have a fan but the heat is just so bad I hope for alls sake that this heat wave will pass soon.
