Just some minutes ago I went over to my henhouse of 68 chickens to open up and give them water. I opened the door and saw my sweet Lucille, silver laced wyandotte with a single comb hatched in March, on the floor dead. Chickens were picking at her dead body. I didn't notice anything wrong with her last night! Though I also didn't sit and study every birds behavior either. I'm heartbroken! I know God's in control, but this is the first time in a while I've balled so hard. :hit

I’m so sorry!!! I know some people don’t have a bond with a chicken but I had a beautiful hen who was nicer than my dog who passed away almost a year ago and I’m still pretty sad about it. Her name is midnight 😢 I’m sorry once again for your loss! It’s really hard to lose an animal that was close to you

Ahhhhhh she was beautiful, I am so sorry for your loss. Jesus has you in his hands holding you, let the tears out. I lost my 1st and only Easter Egger when she was only 3 months old and I was devastated. I cried for days, she was my favorite of the flock and loved to snuggle her head into my hair and take a nap. God heals our pain in time. *hugs* 🤗🙏
Thank you!
