    I came home from work today and found our 1 1/2 year old Partridge Plymouth Rock hen passed away. It was not any hotter than it has been today. I gave them fresh water and they had plenty of food. I don't know what happened! She was fine this morning before work. Just very sad right now! I know its a fact of life, but we love our girls!

    So very sorry. I had a hen die unexpectedly and it is heartbreaking.

    Thank you, I appreciate that. I just wish I knew what happened or wish I could have done something to prevent it!

    Of course you do. I'm so sorry. [​IMG] Unfortunately, things happen, and we never know what is was. Penny is a beautiful girl.
     
  5. Sorry for your loss it's hard when you lose a pet they are after all apart of your family.
