Scarlet’s fight ended this afternoon. She was comatose when I got to the barn. I did not disturb her. After her long battle I let her rest. I checked on her a while later. I thought she was gone, but picked her up to make sure. She was limp, but a could feel some slight movement in her chest. I held her for a little while until I was sure. I still do not know how she held out as long as she did. Or what was ailing her in the first place. I am going to miss her.
This photo is from just a couple months ago. She was sun bathing and I liked the way the sun looked shining through her comb. Hopefully they have sun bathing, dust baths, and lots of yummy treats in chicken heaven.
