Phoebe was the best hen.
I always had a soft spot for Leghorns so when a friend asked me to rescue her from their bullying Rhode Reds, I agreed.
She was a wonderful hen, a great layer and a hilarious personality.

So, when I found her dead in the house this morning, you can imagine my feelings.

Phoebe was a commercially-bred hen. Her eggs were large and many.
It seems she had sudden, internal prolapse. I'd had a leghorn with prolapse before, and I'd cured her, but sadly it was not so for Phoebe.

There was an egg entangled and blood on her behind. Death appeared to have been very quick.
I'm not going to do an autopsy, so if you can confirm that it was internal prolapse I'd be so grateful.

Funnily enough, though you won't realise it, you've seen Phoebe around. She's been in all my avatars and entered in countless competitions.

I'll always love you Phoebe. Your name means Shining One and I'm sure you shine now.
Farewell, little hen.
