Star had such a short time with us of only two months and she was only six months old. Once again caring for a problem girl had made me very fond of her. Since she tore the ligament in her ankle I had always made sure that she was eating enough. I also made sure the steps from the chickens’ patio remained shallow.

I now wish I had taken more photos of her recently but of course I thought I had plenty of time. Her comb had grown since we first we had her and her feathers looked pristine.

She was with us for such a short time but she was a lovely girl and will be missed. Goodbye Star.

    You’ve captured some lovely photos, considering you had her so little time.

      I just wish I had taken some more photos of her recently but I have been so caught up with treating them and didn’t know her time was going to be cut short. She was growing more beautiful.

      It is so sad. Both Sophie and David have had the same thing at point of lay so it is perhaps not that uncommon. Still so sad though. Xx
