Our wee stolen chicken, known as Iggy, passed away peacefully tonight. I don’t think there is anything more we could have done, as she never really got the hang of balance, and was wobbly on her feet. She was so much smaller than her brothers and sisters and she was so cute and blessed our lives for the short time she was in it. She cheeped and peeped her way into our hearts and her absence after a few short days with us, will be greatly felt. Iggy was a lovely little chicken.
Now we just need to tell the kids in the morning and hold a wee service in the field where all our other favourite chickens who have died end up. It will be a good time to stop and think about the true meaning of Easter as we say goodbye to the cutest little button.
Come again soon – the circle of life will continue on, but we will miss Iggy.
