It feels very much like it’s endemic now. And no real way of preventing it. We’d better get started on setting up entertainment for the coops.
All going well here - our two are going through their moult so they look absolutely horrendous.

Plus, I lost one of my little ex-battery hens during the night. I found her when I opened up this morning. Always nice for them if they go in their sleep I always think. Age wise she has done quite well, bless her as she was just over 4.5 years old. My oldest ever ex batt girl was just over 5.5 years old.
I am very very sad to tell you all that our little Cayuga duck Hoppy died this morning. We got her when she was 6 weeks old and she would have been 10 years old next month.
We are heartbroken. RIP our little girl x
Bless you both and thank you so much for your support. It really means a lot as I have been so upset this week and I miss her terribly.
She didn't suffer in any way at all. We went to get her up in the morning and noticed her head was a bit floppy and within ten minutes she slowly went. The best thing was that she wasn't alone and we were with her at the end. I guess she waited for us, maybe. who knows. She has now been laid to rest next to her pal Pingu right near our favourite purple Buddleia.
I don't post on your thread much because I don't keep hens myself but I do love following this thread and catching up on everyone's hen and ducks news. Just wanted to say that I am thinking of you both, take care.
