Happy Earthday Y'all.

R.I.P. Hildegarde the Chicken

We Lost our oldest Hen "Hildegarde" (named for Hildegarde of Bingen) this past week. Broad daylight kill. I am not sure whether or not it was a Bald Eagle or what. 
 She gave us many eggs and I am Thankful for that.  Since then the other white hen Isabelle has been a little wacky(the only witness besides Mollie the Dog). The third hen Chloe won't leave the nest. She has been sitting on the unfertilized eggs for over a week.  I have had to use a stick to nudge her off and get them out.  I will miss watching the 3 of them together.
