Little Dizzy is no more; my flock is down to ten.
My "challenged" chicken passed away today while I was spending the day with my Little Farmer. I was only slightly surprised, as she had not progressed as well as the others. Maybe she was affected early on by the incubator malfunction. (Which was why I got five in the first batch and not 20). But she had, as I mentioned recently, begun to make her way back into the coop at night. But it is just speculation as to the cause.
I guess maybe Other One, as the sole remaining black chicken, will need a different name. Maybe Inky, or Cinder Ella. Yea, I think I like that: Cinder Ella.
