Sweet Picasso, so calm and loving came to me a year ago from a neighbor who didn't keep her chicks safe. The only surviving member this 3 or 4 week old chick had dried blood,a broken leg, and a impacted crop full of hay.
She fought side by side with me as I nursed her back to health she overcame everyrhing.
She moved in with my flick of Easter eggers who are sweet and accepted her.
She was a rumpless, speckled sussex who waddled a bit bc of her past injuries.
She never laid an egg I suppose bc of her trauma as a chick. She spent time in the egg house though as others laid we nicknamed her "the midwife"

Friday she came to me for a cuddle, acted fine. Saturday my dh told me she was acting poorly at roost time. Sunday morning my dd found her on the coop floor, gone.

I'm not sure what it was she was 1 years old, a sweet butterball, glad to have had her she'll be missed

So sorry for your loss. Amazing how attached you can get to a chicken.
