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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

Hedwig was my chicken We got her 3 months ago. She was the nicest Buff Orpington chicken. She was so young she died from a hawk attack.
Evelyn the chief chook
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!
