    [​IMG] She was a big beautiful sweet hen who laid huge 2.2 ounce eggs nearly everyday. She was sweet, and I loved to see her fuzzy panted legs running around the yard... She passed last night, warm in the house, from unknown causes. She was coming out of a molt and because very ill at the tail end of it. I really really enjoyed having her, and I can't believe how sad I am [​IMG] It is one thing if the bird is intended for meat, but this was unexpected [​IMG] and now I only have three little girls with a brand new huge 8x8 coop.. OiVey.. I am just so sad this morning [​IMG]

    Here are some pictures of the girl.. RIP Mama Brahma Monica

    She will always be in our hearts!

    Poor girl! She was very pretty. My dark Brahma is my favorite too (he is a rooster).

    I'm sorry, sweetie. [​IMG]

    I'm so glad she crossed the Rainbow Bridge from inside your house. It's why I have an " infirmary" inside, because I was so saddened by one of my flock " patients" passing in the convalescent coop outside. Still very tough and heartbreaking, but just a tad less knowing she was comfortable in the crossing.

    She was such a sweet chicken, too. My heart goes out to you, hon. [​IMG]
