    Keeper of the hens

    The other morning I went to clean the coop and feed/water the hens, and noticed Leslie wasn't out (she's usually one of the first to come and see what treats I have for them) - she was still in the house, dead. :(

    I've no idea what it was - I checked the recordings and she was fine the previous day - Scarlet thought it might be Sudden Death Syndrome, maybe something congenital or just that first egg gone wrong...

    We'll miss you, Helen took it badly as Leslie was the one that used to sit on her knee for treats and clicker training - we shouldn't really have favourites but she was a gorgeous and impressive hen - I've never known one so big and clumsy but she was also the most gentle hen too!

    Awwe Neil I am so sorry she sure was a lovely girl what an awful shock for you. All the hens looked fine to me except for the droopy tail one and we know about her, and even she is active most of the day. She could have had heart problems due to her size. I know what they call meat birds can die due to their size putting such a strain on the heart. So sorry Love to you both xxx

    Oh that's so sad, I'm so sorry. It seems far too soon for you to have lost one of the girls already. At least it was peaceful and sounds like she didn't suffer. :heart:

    And she had a brilliant life with you as well. God bless, Leslie. :heart:
