CutiePie

by Nitro
(Texas)

This was the smallest but cutest Red Rhode island I have ever seen. She was just really adorable.

That's where the name Cutie Pie came from. Every time I would pick her up, put her down, she would fluff her feathers as no chicky has done before.

We all love you baby girl, the best, sweetest chicken in our flock.

RIP Cutie Pie

I'm so sorry for your loss. Cutie Pie sounds like a lovely, sweet hen.

She was loved, and she had a good life while she was with you.

RIP, Cutie Pie.

Chipmunk

by Jan
(VA)

Chipmunk was my smallest chicken in the flock. She had neat stripes down her back.

She was about 5 months old when she died. In the morning she was fine and normal. We went to feed everyone in the afternoon, and found her laying dead in the coop.

So sorry for your loss.
by: Cath

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, Jan. It's very hard when a chicken who seems perfectly healthy at one point just dies for no apparent reason.

Just remember that Chipmunk had a good life while she was with you. She was loved, and cared for. Not all chickens can claim that.

RIP, Chipmunk.

Cocoa

by Beverly Norrgard
(Tahlequah, OK USA)

She was such a sweetie. Every time I came outside, as soon as she saw me she would waddle/run to me! She loved getting pets and cuddles!

I loved her, and miss her every day. I have not been able to buy another Golden Marian, she is just not replaceable.

I left my flock in the care of someone and when I returned more than half of my girls were gone. The dogs had been let loose and killed my babies.

A sad, sad day.

What a hard day...
by: Cath

I am so terribly sad to hear this, Beverly. Not only to lose cocoa, but half of your flock. what a terrible shock for you. Thank you for sharing with us.

I've been there - I had two entire flocks wiped out by foxes and pine martens. For a while I thought I wouldn't have any more chickens - but of course, I did.

Remember that your chickens had a wonderful life while they were with you, being loved and cared for.

Cocoa will be missed. Sending you thoughts and healing across the miles.

Baby Runt

by Kris
(Alabama)

Baby Runt was 5 days old. During the night, I guess she got cold and was laying in the box. I wrapped her in a towel to warm her up. I worked with her for 40 minutes, all of a sudden she opened her eyes, gave a big shove with her feet and died.

We have a chicken grave yard on our property and I laid her to rest there.

Goodbye little chick.
by: Cath

I'm so sorry to hear about baby Runt, Kris. You did your best for her, but sometimes there's just nothing we can do.

I also have a chicken graveyard. It's comforting to know we give our chickens respect in death as we do in life.

RIP baby Runt.

Peas

Peas and Carrots was were brought up together. We had them since they were little chicks. They were best friends. She was my first layer of small eggs a few weeks ago.

She trusted me to hold and love on her. This weekend she died from EYP. Being a new chicken Owner I look everything up on the internet. I knew she was on her way out the day before given her symptoms.

My boyfriend said Carrots, her bff, was huddled over her protecting her.

Such a hard day. I have a feather of hers I’m going frame.

by: Cath

I'm so sorry for your loss, and thank you for telling us about Peas (I love the names, by the way).

Egg Yolk Peritonitis is sadly quite common, particularly in young hens. You did all you could for her.

The idea of framing one of her feathers is lovely - thank you for the suggestion. I think that would be a lovely way for many people to remember their loved chickens.

So sorry for your loss.
by: Cath

I'm so sorry for such a terrible loss, Marco. To lose one chicken is bad enough, but losing five at the same time must have been devastating for you.

Sending hugs across the miles in your loss.

RIP Hedwig.
by: Cath

I'm so sorry to hear about Hedwig, Aaron. Buff Orpingtons are one of my favourite breeds. So calm and gentle.

Hawks are so quick, it's very hard to stop them taking chickens. I feel for your loss.

Evelyn the chief chook

by Kathryn
(Wales)

Evelyn

Evelyn

Evelyn was one of 3 hybrids bought 7 years ago. Initially, she wasn’t particularly friendly, but as usual my husband persevered. To our delight she began sitting beside us on the garden bench (though never ever on our lap ).

As soon as we sat on the bench, there she was!
The way she warmed up to us always surprised me, but she really learnt to enjoy human company.

She was unquestionably the Queen of all she surveyed, and never tolerated challenges from any of our growing flock..
She also had looks to go with her personality, so she had it all really 😂😂.

We noticed her slowing down after about 5 years and not being able to hold her own with the new girls on the block.

She just stopped being interested in life eventually, and we found her half in the coop and half out of it ( our coop was always open because the large run was very safe.)

My husband still says that he misses her and wishes he could find a replica!

RIP Evelyn
by: Cath

I’m so sorry for your loss, Kathryn. Evelyn sounds as though she was quite the character. I imagine it would be hard to find a replica!

Five years is a good age for a chicken, so I’m glad you had her for that length of time. She obviously had a lovely life while she was with you, so thank you for enabling her to lead her best life.
