    Sadly lost another oldie this morning. She'd had heart failure for a couple of years but still laid at least one egg a month.
    Flokki Is going to miss her...she was his favourite.
    She had a small hernia when she hatched...and her ' sister ' had sprangled legs, and both needed care and attention. I posted something about splinting her sister on here at the time...maybe 6 years ago?
    (Sister passed away a couple of months ago but they used to hang around together all the time)

    At 10am, Mrs Brown made her final flight to the Great Chicken Coop in the sky.
    RIP Mrs Brown - you were a sweetie.

    I'm sorry to hear about Mrs BRown My Princess Potty passed a few weeks ago, Duchess Dotty passed a year ago. Only Lady Penelopy remains and she's so broody. Do you think that is a sign of loneliness?

    ^At one stage, we were left with just one chicken while waiting for others for arrive, which took weeks. The remaining chicken went into a miserable decline. I really thought she was going to die at the end, as she stopped eating and drinking. Fortunately, the new arrivals turned up and within a day she was as good as new and loved having some youngsters to show the ropes to.

    Time for at least one new one?
    Note to self: Getting too old not to have a life.

    I'm left with one chook now, Mrs New-Brown, who hasn't laid for months. Next week, I'm picking up 3 rescue hens, that I'd already reserved before Mrs Brown's demise.

    Mrs New-Brown was in the kitchen an hour ago, doing her hoovering, clearing up the dog biscuit crumbs.
    Get some more hens, Sarriss, they're flock animals.

    EDIT - She came back for more!!

    Yep - chickens shouldn’t be on their own!

    Well done that lass. They look like they deserve a bit of pampering. They'll get plenty of that with you
