Sad news today at Prairie Cairn Cottage. I went out to the coop this afternoon and found my dear sweet Golda dead. No indications of fowl play (yes, a horrible pun). The last I saw her she was happy and healthy and eating her favorite meal worm treats. She brought a lot of joy to my life and I will miss this dear chick. She was the one that molted early, she was the one the others picked on and I had to doctor her up a few times. She was also the one who would bow down and let me pet her and would come up to see what I was doing when I was working near her. She enjoyed being able to free range in the backyard and was always a happy girl.
I will miss you Golda. Thank you for the happiness you brought and the eggs you gave us.
