Louise: We're so sorry we couldn't save you, and we're so happy we were able to share your life with you and give you a good one. Thank you for all of the beautiful eggs. We already miss you so much. You were a blessing, and our homestead won't be the same without you. Goodbye sweet girl. Candace and Nate

We lost Louise, our Rhode Island Red, last night to what we believe was an impacted crop. She was our favorite. She would follow me around the yard and peck me on the back of the leg when I didn't acknowledge her. She was a talker and loved to scream at me when I stepped inside the coop. She was our best and biggest egg layer. We buried her under the peach tree.
