RIP Buffy

This is Buffy. She was the third hen in my flock of seven and she came with another Buff Orpington, who earned the name Pushy and a Dominique, Ripley.   That’s Buffy, on the right.

She was always checking out what everyone else was up to.

She laid her eggs where she wanted to.

Buffy was our alpha hen; a leader in the best sense of the word.    She warned of hawks, was a bit aloof, and she didn’t pick on others much, even though she could have.

Thank you, Buffy, for your eggs, your friendship, and all the fun!    We’ll miss you.

    So sorry for your loss of Buffy. It’s hard to lose an animal – they are a part of our family. May she be in chicken heaven, happily laying her eggs wherever she pleases.

    You have chickens too? You are living my dream life.

      Erin,
      I just cleaned out their coop (of poop) and am headed for the shower. My garden will be very well fed next spring by the wonderful, rich, dark brown compost those girls are providing. They are great pets and I love each of them – and the eggs are superb!
      I hope you are able to get some of your own –
      Laura
