R.I.P. Ophelia & Rose
We've lost two chickens over the last two months. Rose to an opposum, and Ophelia for causes unknown. I have to admit, 6 chickens were about two too many. We buried our first pet out in the back corner of the yard. Finn made a bouquet of flowers from some that he grew personally. Jeremy asked the boys to say a few words. Finn said, "You liked it when we picked you up." Scout said, "The other chickens liked you." I thought these were pretty sweet. We sang "You are my Sunshine" and said a prayer thanking God for the eggs that these two ladies had provided all these months.
