Rest In Peace Sweet Little Nellie

December 31, 2010


We don't know what happened, but when I came home from work on Wednesday I found Nellie dead on the floor of the coop.

There's no obvious signs - no strangulation, no wounds, etc.  And she wasn't wheezing, coughing, sneezing, or any of the other evident signs of illness.

She had been acting fine, although, as we all know birds hide their illnesses so they aren't seen as weak and, therefore, pecked at.

She was one of the new girls.  She was so sweet - loved being held, was very inquisitive and docile.

All I can hope is that she didn't suffer.

Poor Sam was so upset when I discovered her.

The rest seem to be doing fine.

All we can do is watch for any signs of illness.

What a sweet little girl to have lost.

I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this year........it was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...
