on our mini-farm, as one more of our chickies has passed away. foster was known as the one in the bunch who would peck at your toes if you were barefooted in her presence. she was a good laying hen who gave big eggs through this past autumn. we noticed she wasn't sleeping with the flock and had lost her ability to jump in and out of the henhouse. now she's buried beside her best buddy porter. and she'll be missed.
