Goodbye Chloe - and Bonnie.

Sadly we had to have Chloe, one of our rescued, ex-battery hens put to sleep this morning.
She had almost two years of freedom since she left the battery farm in June 2008.
I have not been keeping you up to date with the chicken situation, Bonnie died a few weeks ago and we lost Maggie last September.
Here is a photo of Bonnie and Chloe from last Autumn.

This is not meant to be a sad post as all three girls enjoyed their freedom to the max and we were so pleased to have them as our pets.

I made a quilted piece last year to celebrate their freedom which I don't think I have shown on the blog but will be exhibiting at the FOQ in August. Perhaps you might see it there?

you can tell the character of a person by the way they treat animals. I am proud of you!
Sorry to hear of their deaths.

Good on you for giving them a chance at a 'normal' life.
