RIP Merida

Ginger (L) and Merida (R)

When I went out to open the coop this morning I found my favourite chicken Merida dead.  Totally unexpected as she was just over a year old.  Yesterday she was free ranging round the garden despite the pouring rain.  When I closed up last night all 3 were snuggled up together.  This morning she was curled up by the door.

I'm hoping it was just one of these things and the other 2 are ok.

RIP my brave wee Merida :-(


  1. Yes sometimes things like this just reason or rhyme. x

  2. Aw, loss is always hard. Chickens though, as you very well know, are a complete law unto themselves. Hope others are fine and live to a ripe old chicken age :)

  3. Aww ... so sad. It's always such a horrible shock to open the door and find a chicken dead when there is no apparent reason for it. It's happened to me a few times, and usually at this time of year.

  4. Sorry to hear of your loss. It's hard to lose an animal any time but particularly when its unexpected like that. I hope the other chickens aren't too upset. x
