Hazel was Bubby's favorite.
Tuesday, April 2, 2019
Our sweet Hazel left us on Sunday. We found her scrunched in a corner when we checked on the girls in the afternoon. I don't know what happened to her. She laid an egg, and then died. In retrospect, there were signs that she wasn't feeling well--she had been moving slower than the other girls (which I thought was just because she was bigger), we got a couple of blood-streaked eggs from her, and she passed some watery stools, but all of those things are normal things that happen with chickens from time to time, so I wasn't too alarmed. Chickens are experts at hiding sickness or injury, so we didn't know there was anything wrong enough to cause death. Poor Hazel.
