    RIP Ruby you were such a great hen. You always laid the biggest eggs. You had a great personality. We all loved you.

    Ruby went egg bound months ago and she has slowly become worse. She had been very lethargic the past few days. Today she just laid there. Didn't eat a thing or drink. I have had her for over a year. She is about over a year old. She was one of our first chickens we ever owned. The second hen to lay. She was beautiful too.

    Oh I'm so sorry Erin. RIP Ruby. At least she is happy and out of her suffering.

    I'm so sorry. Ruby was a good girl. She's in a better place now, out of suffering.
    I know how you feel. [​IMG]
