    i lost my second hen today. The first was of natural causes but my smallest hen Clever got severly hurt. a animal of some sort got her there was a small whole in the run next to her body. I remembered seeing her this morning when i put them outside. She was walking backwards as usal on rainy day becuse that is how she dodges rain drops. i pet her goodbye and told her i would see her later. well i did but not the way i wanted to, and thhe worst part is that latley i havent had enough time to stay every day as long as i normaly do so i promised them this weekend that i would sit with them and let them out of there run to play. But for Clever my tiny little barred rock that wont happen for her and i just feel plain terrible!!!!!




    In Memory of Clever Rose:

    Quiet and sweet
    black and white all over
    this little hen was shy
    but was there when treats were given
    She peck you and run
    it was a game she would always play
    only sat on your lap once in a while to sing you a song
    good~ bye my little clever you will truley be missed

    This is a sad fact to point out...but chickens are number one on the grocery lists of most other animals out there, so the potential for sad partings will always be more present when owning chickens than they will just owning dogs or cats.

    I suppose it gets easier when you make your heart understand that and learn to not form too close an attachment to these types of animals/pets. Or not...depending on just how much misery one wants to go through in a lifetime.
