Dottie was a silver spangled hamburg. We bought her in the summer of 2001 when she was a year old. She was always the smallest chicken we had, but no one ever picked on her. She wasn't a great layer, but she laid eggs up through last summer. She was fine this morning when I fed and watered and then she was just sitting there in her favorite spot dead when I went out to get eggs this afternoon. She had a good long chicken life. Rest in peace Dottie!
