Goodbye Henny

Sad news from the farm today, Henny has taken ill. I'm not sure what is wrong with her but when I found her in the goat's stall this morning she couldn't walk a straight line, or get her head up off her chest.

For now she's found a nice quiet spot, I made sure she's has food & water close by and she's enjoying her last day. If she's still unable to stand by tonight we'll have to make sure she's not suffering.

We don't actually know how old Henny is (she came with the house) so this may simply be the end of a long life. I am going to miss her though. We'll definitely have to get more Delewares in the future, she's got a lovely disposition for not being a tame chicken.
