One of three hens I got for my allotment last year.
She lived on plot 22, with Margo & Ethel. Quieter than the other two, she happily went about her day. Sunbathing, sitting on top of the coop, pecking around or sitting in the sand area, in an old tyre.
She was always last into the coop at dusk, sometimes waiting to be lifted in.
I will miss her but know that she had a short but happy life.
She came to us as a day old chicken who became my granddaughter's very favorite.I couldn't help but favor her also.
She was a elegant Silkie with pretty bright blue checks hence Princess Blueberry. I always choose her tiny bumpy eggs over the other girls. They seemed to be special.Very tasty indeed!
Tonight I went to put the girls to bed and there lying still was my special girl.
She was comical the way she ran to be with the others. Princess blueberry was shy and sweet and endlessly curious. She survived a close call with a red tailed hawk last summer barely escaping. She knew her name and enjoyed following me around the garden in hopes of a tasty worm.
I will miss her terribly. Perhaps I'll never stop looking for her funny hairdo as she ran out her door in time for breakfast.
Princess Blueberry's life was short, only a year old but it was a happy one.
We will miss her .May she rest in peace in the mint garden and feel the warm earth on a crystal blue summer day.
We had 9 lovely chickens, one of them the friendliest cockerel you would ever meet.
When I came down to feed them in the morning, none of them were there. Our lovely bantams had been stolen by someone I must have met, as only our neighbours knew about them. I couldn't believe someone could stoop so low.
Our 4 larger chickens had been let out, they were obviously 'not worth anything'. They were all killed by the fox.
Thank you, lovely chickens! You were fantastic pets.
