And then there were 8
I went in this morning to check on my chickens, and found the prettiest one laying there frozen. Poor thing. Anything could have killed her really, but the -18C/0F weather could have done it.
Their water was frozen as well...solid. Poor gals.
It had to be the prettiest one too. She was the only one with a really nice comb and grand feathers. I bet it was a conspiracy. All the other hens were jealous of her beauty and so refused to include her in the huddle.
Girls are so mean.
You laugh, but Chickens have hillarious personalities. There is a definite pecking order and they show off and fight. Can't blame them. That is a lot of gals in one small space.
Seriously girls...when will we stop being each others worst enemies?
Anyway, she is being cremated in the outdoor furnace as we speak.
Rest in peace my Princess.
And now there are 8 ;(
