I am feeling very sad today.
Our black Australorp Chicken, Suzi, died this morning and there was nothing we could do to help.
We have noticed she hasn't been a good egg producer, maybe giving us a handful of eggs while the other four have been popping them out daily.
She would go in and lay for a long time and come out cackling and no egg but once in a while we would get one. Yesterday she did it again but no egg, this morning she just keeled over and died after laying for awhile on the lawn. We checked but could feel no egg, but we are pretty sure it was egg bound and had problems for some time getting them out of the channel they came thru.
I am feeling very very sad right now as she was soooooooo beautiful, so curious and so sweet.
Con, Annie and I buried her in the back field by a shed under a big stone.
Rest in Peace little Suzi.
I'm going to miss you!
