Marjorie - so long and thanks for the eggs

Marjorie a white Suffolk, was one of the first hens I bought about three years ago. My wife noticed yesterday she seemed a bit off colour, drinking a lot of water and walking very slowly. I said she'd be alright but this morning she was at the back of the hut, her usually beautifully red comb was a sort of blue colour and her eyes were shut. It looks like she had died in her sleep.

She was a happy hen in life, a good layer and had lovely eggs. She had a big garden to wander around in. She will be much missed by her sisters Ethyl, Henrietta and Dorothy.
