She was my black bantam cochin hen. The only one I had, and I have had her longer than any of my other chickens. She was only 3 years old. She was overweight and seemed to be having trouble laying eggs this summer and she panted a lot. Today when I went to let her out she was panting really hard and looked very ill. I took her in to give her a bath and she collapsed in my arms and died. She was my special girl and I will miss her greatly, I already do. I keep thinking what if I would have done this, or what if I would have done that. I blame myself. Poor Girl Rest in Peace.
