Day before yesterday, my little leghorn girl, Felipa, went into the nesting box to lay her daily orb of yummy white protein goodness as she does every day, but she became eggbound and died that evening trying to get it out. We tried what we could to help her, but sometimes it just happens. She was a young bird, our first loss, and she had been laying about six weeks. I wanted to share some pics of her and her life. I have more pics, but these are the only ones I've uploaded so far. This is Felipa as a young 6-week-old chick, the day she came to live with us. This is Felipa at roughly 2-1/2 months old: This is here in August, about 3 weeks before she began laying: She was a fun leghorn, lots of personality, kinda loud and flighty but super-friendly and warm, not your typical leghorn. She would get up in our laps for pets and treats. We'll miss her. She's in a special spot under the tree in the backyard where she especially loved to forage for bugs.
