...and then there was one

I'm not sure how long a chook's average life span is, but one of our girls certainly lifted the bar

We got Dionne with a couple of other 'girls" just over ten years ago, and today, she left us

She was a 'stayer'. She outlived the others by years!...and she was still laying the odd egg until late last year!

Now we just have Val

Red left us earlier this year...

Dionne and Val kept each other company these past months, even cuddling up on cold nights in their coop...ahhh well... time to get some more girls to keep Val company.

Maybe just before Christmas...

Sleep well old girl.


  1. Oh the poor old girl, but it sounds like she had a good life :)

  2. I didn't know chickens lived up to ten years. At least Dionne lived a long happy life.


I love to hear your thoughts.
