Mamma Mabel

Found my dear little mother hen in the run this morning, a light Sussex hen about 10 months old, but a cheeky girl. Always first at the food tray, loved to cluck proudly when she'd laid and led my other 2 hens into all sorts of scrapes. :)

I don't know what took her, no injuries, no evidence of being egg bound, no excretion problem, loved her food and was a little heavy I suppose but active around the run.

She will be missed, I didn't know what to do with her body, so I've wrapped her in a towel for now and put her in my shed. Maggie and Maud are subdued today, walking a little slower and very quiet. A few little treats later, a bit of fresh corn and fruit maybe. RIP my little boss lady. x
