our first farm casualty


We had our first farm casualty today :(

When I went out to say good morning to the chickens, I discovered that one of our beloved, endangered Russians had died sometime in the night.  Poor little Russian hen – one of her fellow hens was cuddled up beside her body.  It was very sad.  We have no idea why she died, but she didn’t seem to have anything visually wrong with her (no wounds, bugs, etc).  We’re hoping it wasn’t a disease that could infect our other chickens…

We buried our little Russian beneath this mound of earth and plants.  Bye bye little chicken.  We thought you were pretty swell.
