I had to give my favorite hen away

She was getting picked on so unmercifully.
I couldn't watch it and knew I had to action quickly.
I called our local feed and seed store and decided to bring her there.
They said they'd find a good home for her.
I know them all down there so I don't think they'd tell me a story.
Her name way Mama...

Yep feeling sad.....

Oh she is beautiful Pattee, I didn't even know a hen could be that pretty.

I did eat a lot of Sheldon's favourite food and that is his Mother's meatballs.

Love Renee xoxo

Oh no! That is so sad. I have 5 chickens and they are brutal with each other sometimes, especially in the beginning. I read a book that said they have the mindset of a 2 year old. My neighbors must think I'm batty standing out in the coop scolding them in my bathrobe.
They are a huge source of amusement for me as well as some mighty fine eggs. I hope you're feeling happier soon. ;)

Gosh Pattee, she is gorgeous! I had two hens when I was little - Henry and Henrietta (both female!) and they too laid great eggs. I'd love to have two hens again. They are so very special. I hope your pretty little hen will be happy in her new home and that you will be feeling happier too!

Awwww, I love chickens! Sorry it worked out that way Pattee, but at least you know you did the right thing for her.

I wish my hubby would let me have a few hens. My daughter lives on 2¼ acres 5 minutes away & said in a few years I can have some there. She already has 3 goats.
