yesterday morning when I went to my barn one of my Plymouth Rocks did not look good. She was 9 yes old. I told my husband that I think that I will loss her. Sure enough when I went to go and check on her 2 hrs later she was gone. She wasn't sick she just died of old age. Made me really sad cause I had her since she was a day old. In July she would of been 10. My chicks are doing well & growing like a weed. My other 4 old ones who are almost 10 where sad, they just stood there and looked at her. I buried her in my back yard. I miss her I do hope that she did not have to suffer. Well, just wanted to share my sadness with you guys. I have one question, when can my Orphington chicks eat grass? They are almost 10 wks. old. Thank you.
