Dusty was part of 4 chickens that we bought during the Delta outbreak of Covid 19 in Australia.
We named her and the others after Stranger Things characters and she was dearly loved and hand raised by Frankie and Nash.
Her death was sudden and the cause unknown. She was beautiful with black and white spots.
She will be missed by us and by her chicken friends.
Prudence was my little grey hen. She was just beautiful.
Last in the pecking order, but first in my heart ❤️
My Buffy Love of my life
by Jose Delgado
(Tacoma Washington USA)
My Buffy was a two year old Buff Orpington who stood by me when I was happy or sad. She would comfort me and lay on my chest at night and let me pet her.
I could call her by name and she’d come running because she knew papa had come with treats from the store.
Lost her this morning. A couple weeks ago we found bumble foot on her and she was put on injections of antibiotics and a culture taken. Well two days ago doctor told us she had slight case of e-coli. So we started pink meds oral, 1.5 dose.
She was on my chest night for last she was looking a bit lethargic, but we figured it’s the meds.
So yesterday morning, my cousin starts calling while I am in the bathroom. I hurry out but she had flipped on her back, flapped her wings and was still warm but dead.
Rushed her to the doctor, who told me there's nothing they could do.
Last year my other precious daughter, Sunshine had a heart attack while getting an x-ray also at the doctor's. She was 3 to 5 years old.
Sorry, I can’t really think right now. My girls are all very smart and they are my daughters, so it almost feels like life is over when each passes. She was the sweetest girl ever in my life.
As time goes by I can only pray to GOD that he’s put them in a better place.
From my family, the Delgados, to yours - just pray for their souls to be in a better place.
To those who have cried about your babies, you have our condolences.
And thank you for this web site.
My sweet girls
I love my chickens. I look forward to being with them every day when I get home.
Tonight, I found a brand new chick out of the nest. I do not know why. My silkies are usually so attentive as mamas. She was alive, so I cured her in my hands and warmed her. I put her under a heat lamp and made sugar water but she died within the hour.
I am just so sad. I lost a sweet Silkie hen to a Fox a month ago, she was big and slow and the thought of it just replays over and over in my head.
These losses hurt and make no sense to most people. Thank you for listening.
My Dear Pinky, Rest In Peace
by Sanjay Pradeep
Pinky Was the name given by a boy's sister who was exited we got a new pet hen. Pinky was the naughtiest of the 6 sibling chickens the boy and his sister got.
Pinky was always attached to the boy, she always shared memories with him, closest ones....
Many months passed and Pinky and the boy's relationship got stronger and we were the best friends and even though we were different species, we talked to each other.
And today... this morning... she suddenly sat down hard...
She saw the boy's face one last time with her cute shiny eyes, and then they lost their beauty and she was gone - vanished like a wind which passed over a small boy's face.
She left the boy alone crying. She was everything to him, but I think god wanted her, so he took her to a better place.
Rest In Peace My Dear Pinky. I and your brothers and sisters are always there with you in your heart.
I will never forget you, my little chicklet.
Belladonna: : May your sweet little spirit fly free forever

To a sweet little Ayam Cemani hen, Bella, who died for no known reason in the coop. She was only about 9 months old.
May she always fly free on the other side.
Blessings to you, baby Bella.
Rhoddy Liam Cinnamon- I love you so much

I'm so glad I found your site, and reading your articles and watching your videos makes me comforted by the dedication you have for your chickens.
One of my roosters, Rhoddy, passed away yesterday and I still can't stop crying about him. He was a stunning chicken, a Rhode Island Red, and I miss him so terribly.
He was so young, and we could find no cause for his death. I'm going through all these emotions and I can't help but think he deserved a longer life. He was so healthy, and I'm going to miss him so, so much.
Just knowing you and so many others understand how I feel makes me feel better about how terrible this feels for me.
Thank you for your video, and I'm sorry for your losses as well. I hope you know we're here for you too, but at the moment I appreciate you so much helping me leave this memorial for my rooster.
He was perfect, and I would do anything in this entire world to have him back with me. (I'm crying again now)
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!

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.

They were five angels all of them were four months old. A male and female Marans (Julius and Cleo), a male and female Ameraucana(Nero and Nefertiti), and a female CZ Dominant (Bella).
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
