    2454 - one young Sicilian hen that had still enjoyed her breakfast yesterday, pecking the others away, looked a bit weary over the day. No clear symptoms but I didn't like the look of her and found she had lost quite some weight already, so I started a course of antibiotics in the evening but she passed away around noon today. Pity it's Saturday or I would have taken her to the vet's for a p.m. but thankfully the others are all fine.

    When they want to go, they go. We've just despatched our Minorca cock. Perfectly ok at beginning of week, looked a bit off colour middle of week but I put it down to hassle from some of our meat cocks next door - he was a timid soul. Yesterday picked him up and realised he was very light. Today he was hardly moving and he his comb had gone dark. We had been umming and aahing about getting rid anyway as his tail was slightly askew and didn't want to breed this fault into future generations. Still, am kicking myself for not picking up on how poorly he was earlier than yesterday.

    So 2453.

    Plus one dark chocolate brown silkie/ bantam Orpington cross with a top knot - 2455. I don't think I added them when they hatched knowing that some might have to go if they were boys.
    Her brothers went to their new home on a nearby farm tonight and settled into a barn with a mix of large fowl and bantams and a turkey stag.
    They aren't actually farmers, but he likes birds and complained that somebody asked him if he would like a "few" ducks recently and gave him 30. I was lucky to make my getaway without some of the ducks! As we closed up the chook barn, the geese gathered around the door of the barn next door. My ex-boys will stay in the barn for the rest of the winter and free range in the summer.
