Here's the thing though, she's getting old. Her eggs are becoming a rarity and the shells are quite thin. It makes me a little sad to think about her going into retirement. I think I will just put her in my garden when she stops laying eggs. She can live out the rest of her days in peace eating grasshoppers for me. I have tried not to get attached to any animals, but when it comes down to it, she's really my favorite. I'm always happy to see her when I go to water and feed the chickens.
Isn't she just a darlin'?
It's a face only a mother could love,
