I never thought I would get so attached to my girls before I had some of my own. They just add so much to our little backyard farm life.
Lacy Lou was such a special gal. She was a good listener, always there for a fellow feathered friend.
She was head- hen of our first flock and one of now two remaining girls from that first clutch of eight.
She was always the first to check out the scraps from the kitchen making sure it was alright for the rest of the girls.She knew her name and always came when I called. I will miss our daily visits. I have nothing but respect for my girl Lacy Lou... She was a lady, through and through.
Wyandottes are a friendly, mild mannered breed and make wonderful coop mates. Plus, they don't mind the cold winter weather here in New England. To learn more about this wonderful breed go here!
I know the girls will miss her too but they all love Liza Jane (one of our Ameracauna's) who has graciously stepped up as the new Mother Hen!
Don't let this photo fool ya. She's not as mean as she looks, but she runs a tight hen house!
I would love to know how you say goodbye to members of your flock? Do you help them make the transition with special care, a trip the vet or just let nature take it's course?
Talk to me!
