Today when I went down the allotment I was greeted with sad news. I was a little later than usual (the joys of endless medical appointments) to find Phil on his way back home.
He told me that he arrived on site this morning to find Lottie’s body in the coop. Fortunately he had already buried her so we didn’t have to do the burial – or in fact make the hard choice to let her go.
However, it is a sad day as she was one of the original trio of chickens we inherited with our bottom plot last September.
Lottie was always friendly and the most cuddly of all our chicks and will be missed
