    Bec THE Delaware Blue Hen

    Her name was Lily and she was an EE. My parents came over with their dogs, so I locked up the chickens. I guess she was out of the yard and came in at the wrong time [​IMG] I can't completely blame it on him, my one of mine is bad too.


    I will miss her terribly [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Aw I am so sorry to hear that. [​IMG] We came close today, two of my girls were the dogs playthings before I heard the commotion. You just kick yourself for it.

    Bec THE Delaware Blue Hen

    The worst part is...we heard my oldest dog at the door barking, which he rarely does, but we figured it was because of the other 2 dogs being here [​IMG]

    It is so hard not to blame yourself!

    I did a head count tonight and figured that she was hiding somewhere, so I went looking with my flash light. It is going to be 15 degrees tonight so I wanted to find her.....well I found her.

    So sorry about Lily. [​IMG] I have learned the hard way over the years to do a head count every evening.

    Thank you, it always seems to help to come on here because you all understand how it feels.

    I really will miss her
