Sweet Dreams Dear One.......my broken heart

This is Mary Virginia, my oldest and dearest hen who died quite suddenly yesterday afternoon. She was out and about with the flock in the am and early afternoon. I found her in the pen about an hour after I locked them up for the night. On the one hand, I am grateful that she wasn't ill (at least didn't appear to be) wasn't hurt and wasn't pecked on....She was 8 years old and my only EE. We are all missing her terribly. I will miss her sweet disposition and her courage to get up in the morning and participate all day long. She was such a wonderful hen.....dear Mary Virginia.


I am so sorry for your loss.
We just lost one of our old EE hens that was 5 years old a few days ago. her name was cluckers, great hen, but sadly she got egg bound.
I'm so very sorry you lost Mary Virginia.
She was a beautiful girl.
We do become quite attached to our girls, and we hurt so bad when they go. Keep her wonderful memories alive, and she will never be gone.
