    As some of you may have seen, I posted a couple of threads regarding some peculiar behavior with one of my hens. That was Blackberry, my username's inspiration and former chicken of the month. I found her last night; I assumed that age caught up with her, she was five and a half. Her article is available in my signature. This is a very hard loss for me and the rest of the flock, she was a great chicken.

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your sweet Blackberry. [​IMG] Such a pretty girl. It sounds like she didn't suffer, which is a good thing. Sometimes we just don't know what has happened. You are always going to have her memories to reflect on.

    I'm so sorry about Blackberry. I know how hard it is to lose a good chicken.
