"Little" Omelette, Rest In Peace

by Noah McCarter
(Byrnes Mill, MO)

My "little" Omelette was the biggest hen in our flock, though she was at the bottom of the pecking order.

She was our gentlest and sweetest hen, and she was very cautious in her movements when pecking around with her siblings.

We adopted her and her siblings together three years ago, and I loved them all from day one. Her siblings and I miss her terribly, but we are comforted knowing that she lived a happy, albeit short, life.

Omelette loved eating grapes and sitting on laps. She was a beautiful gray Cochin and her feathers were always the softest. She loved clovers and corn.

She is survived by her three siblings, Bilbo, Yang, and Jelly Bean.

Thank you for sharing Omelette's story.

Dear Noah,

Thank you for sharing this story with us. Omelette sounds like a truly lovely chicken - Cochins are a beautiful breed.

Three years sounds like a very short time to us but actually, for chickens it's not at all a bad lifespan. And it's obvious from what you say that you have taken such good care of Omelette while she was alive - any chicken who is lucky enough to be fed grapes has to be very fortunate indeed.

I'm glad you have other chickens, although of course you will never be able to replace Omelette. How lucky she was to have such a lovely home.

My thoughts are with you. <3
