In Remembrance of Goldie

This must be the summer of loss.  We have been doing chickens for about 3 1/2 years now and have had two losses over that time until recently.  Last month we lost one of our California Whites to an unknown cause.  Earlier this year we lost one of our production layers, Speckles, then the baby chick, and now our dear Goldie.  She was one of our earlier crew of chickens.

We have had excessive heat and indexes in excess of 105 degrees and the heat proved to be just too much for her I think.  I wonder if she wasn't hiding an illness though because she was fine the day before.  She had not been showing any signs of stress compared to many of the other chickens.  I was planning on processing her this fall, but it was still a sad loss of life. I hope there are no more for a long while.
