Not a great topic, but something everyone has to deal with.
Violet, my beloved hen has passed. I am sure part of it was from anemia from the chicken lice we happened upon in the coop. I tried as much as i could to nurse her back to health, but it was coming, and she got to live out her days eating treats and did not suffer. I knew it would happen while i was on vacation. I was talking to the hubby one night checking on the homestead and he told me she didn’t make it.
One of the sad things we have to deal with, but it is life on a farm. It doesn’t mean it’s any easier.
RIP Violet, she was my most pet like hen!
