"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.
