RIP Chook (by )

RIP Lilly the Chicken 🙁 Was clucking around this morning went for the pre-Jean home from school check and there was a sadly still form. She was the one who grew her feathers back last, and the one who had not laid a proper egg - last few months after a bout of being so ill we thought she would be gone before Christmas (she's the one we were keeping in the shower) she began laying the smallest little perfect eggs and her plummage was at last brown and full like the others. I hope the last year an a half outside of the battery farm was good to her.

Not sure how Jean is going to take this 🙁 She has been looking after them and is very proud of what a good job she has been making (hence I check up on them because she is only 9 and she sometimes forgets stuff like water). And of course Lilly was her chicken specifically.

    "Chook"? Are you from Australia, New Zealand, or the Scottish Border?

    I'm from Essex (UK) and Alaric is from Luton. Chook means chicken to me, I even had a great nan known as granny chook chook as she used to call her chickens to fed them by crying "chook chook". I do however have both Australian and New Zealand relatives 🙂
