Mama Panya

   We sadly lost one of our hens last evening to a hawk. I have saved this hen a couple times in the past from different animals, but I guess it was just her time. She was from our original flock we got last Spring and Violet named her after one of her favorite books at the time. She was a great egg producer and had the most beautiful black and white feathers. We have a few of them in the house already. I am so glad I treated her to some birdseed and fresh carrots at lunchtime. We are still learning about keeping chickens. There is still much to learn and we are most likely going to buy a new coop from a man who builds them properly. We tried, but I think we need a nicer model to protect our girls. RIP Mama Panya, you will be missed, but never forgotten. There is a photo here from when she was a chick and the other from just a few days ago.
