Hello, I just lost my beautiful white chicken, not sure if she was a leghorn. She was 11 years old and very friendly. I think she died in her sleep during the night because I found her in the coop under a perch. I got her when she was only 4 months old from a school that had hatched some eggs so kids could see where chickens come from. If I sat on a bucket she would immediately jump on my lap and start preening herself. It was such a shock to find her dead. She wasn't acting sick. I called her Bossy because she used to keep the rooster in line. She was always so clean and white. I just had to vent, I knew all of you would understand.
Thank you. Susan in CT

Termi, I am so very sorry to hear about your hen.

Many of us have lost a most beloved chicken and know how difficult it is. They can become part of the family and are dearly missed when gone.

Many hugs to you...

It's so hard to lose a pet, especially one you've had for a long time. After eleven years she would have been a reliable constant in your life. So sorry for your loss.

Hugs. I lost a chicken a few days ago. It hurts to lose a pet. But she obviously lived a very good life to have been with you for so long

Very sorry to hear about Bossy. I'm sure you two created many nice memories in 11 years.
