    RIP, you feisty little unproductive bowling ball.

    We came home tonight to discover that our banty cochin, Tribble, had a wound at her vent and she was in bad shape. We suspect maggots in poop that was caked around her vent. Or maybe it was related to her internal laying. DH culled her.

    We'll miss you, you dumb bird.

    We got her a year ago from a breeder who didn't want her because she had a twisted beak. Turns out she was also an internal layer. And a scratch-hogging piggy. But kids loved her, she tolerated them well, and her egg song sounded like a broken spring in a clock (you can't see her but you can hear her here):

    I love her name.
    Did she actually have light colored patches on her chest or is that sunlight?
    She's beatiful.
    I am so very sorry for your loss.
