    That's a very long time, a great long life for a laying hen! You must have really taken very good care of your chickens.
    I'm sorry she passed away. [​IMG]
    Are you thinking of adding chicks?

    Thanks, we lost two to animals and two to regular deaths. This was her year alone in the cold, so we put up fencing in the nice warm basement for her with a ton of shavings and daily treats, so im sure she died warm, fat and happy.

    Sorry about your loss. I lost one of mine on New Year's, but I hadn't had Ariel nearly as long as you and Clementine were together. [​IMG]
