goodbye LillyBeth

just went to check on her and shes gone
those of you that have known me for a while may remember her comical habit of jumping onto my head every time i bent down in the run . thankfully she stopped doing that as she grew which was lucky for me as she grew into quite a big, heavy bird.
she was a lavender araucana and had an extra toe on each foot which didnt affect her in the least.
im going to really miss her presence in the garden - she was big and beautiful

    SO sorry to hear this, Kath.

    How old was she ? (Getting on a bit, I think....)

    Thanks Sandie
     She was 8 so not a bad innings for a large fowl.She had a lucky escape when a fox visited a few years back - she lost all her tail feathers but no damage done.
    its funny to see the others in the run - all bantams with Sally sioux in charge towering over them

    Hi Kath, sorry I haven't been around for a while and was sad to hear about Lillybeth.  I'm sure she'll be enjoying that big hennie party in the sky xxx

    Hi Kath
    Yes we have moved.   We've had a few teething problems hence not being on here much.    
    Our girls are good thanks.  We moved with 3 girls and adopted 2 from the previous home owners who could not take them with them.

    Thanks Kath, they are both lovely though one is a bit of a pecker!  Nothing serious, no blood drawn - yet :-)
