Get home. Chickens all hiding. Not a good sign. Can’t find Salt. Hawk flies out of the bushes. You guess the rest.
Salt (nicknames: Salty, Salty Bean, Bean, Bean Bean, Baby Bean, Beanie Baby, and Baby Bean Bean) was the happiest, most loving little Dominique. She was so sweet and gave the best cuddles. Her rose comb was so perfect. Every time I visited the chickens she would come up and and say: “brak wak wak” so sweetly. She was so little but she held her own and was at the top of the pecking order. She had one little white feather on her breast that I saved. She was calm and sweet and funny and never failed to make me smile. She had an “eye freckle” in her left eye that was always so cute. She lost her twin sister in September last year right after her and her 4 brood mates survived cocidiosis. Now I don’t have any Dominiques left. I will miss her with the whole of my heart for the rest of my days but I’ll always try to remember all the joy she brought me instead of the sorrow.

Aww, I'm so sorry. I hate hawks. She was beautiful and I'm glad that you had a lot of good moments with her. I hope you feel better soon. Lots of hugs to you, EEforMe.:hugs:hugs:hugs:hugs

I don't hate hawks. They're stunning. Last time one went after my girls he sat on the fence and I watched him for a while. he didn't get any of them and he hasn't been back (yet). I wish they would eat rats exclusively but I guess that's not how life works.
I'm sorry you lost your girl! I hate how its always the favorites! :hugs
