It has been a very long and sad day. TripleA took to the nesting box last night complaining of chest problems and a lack of energy. We could both see that she wasn’t feeling well and we stayed up late last night hoping that she might get better soon. She has been great fun to have around, always taking our teasing in the way it was intended, and always ready to join in with any activities we’ve laid on. Sadly this morning she passed away and we were pleased she had felt no pain. It happened in her sleep. We will miss her hugely, and know she is walking tall somewhere up there. Night, night TripleA – we won’t forget you.
A private burial will take place (just family) but if you'd like to make a donation on her behalf we suggest you send it to her favourite charity - the British Hen Welfare Trust - because without them we would never have got to know her.
