My lovely Bendish Blue hen called Storm has died. I found her 'asleep' in the hen house this morning. I posted about her back in May when she was very ill but somehow by a miracle she pulled through. She put on weight and started to lay eggs. Over the last week I noticed how light she had become and seemed to be off her food. However when I put some chopped up pear in the run last night she fought the other chickens for it!
I feel so sad. She was my favourite hen. I will miss the soft cooing sounds she used to make, her soft blue/grey feathers and gentle nature.
Goodbye Storm. I will miss you.
