A strange mood has descended upon me. I have been restless for days. I watched the decline of my hen as she got closer to death. I fed her berries unwittingly as the internal parasites fed on her. I will never forgive myself for not being vigilant enough in examining her sooner. I was due to get more hens this year but have made the decision not to keep hens anymore. I can't protect them from the foxes without taking away their freedom and I can't deal with the health problems and ensuing vet bills. I feel that a chapter of my life is over - and it is.
Where to now? I just do not know.
