Loved and Remembered

Dear Mom,
Meg was the sweetest little chicken!
 
  She was a friend to Darwin the orphan duckling...
...and she helped him learn how to fly!
She was the flock leader when the new kids came along...
...and she was still the flock leader after they grew three times her size!
She was a beautiful Belgian Bearded D'Uccle hen.
 
And she was loved.

Meg will be dearly missed.
Love, Bonnie Jo

You have touched a tender spot in my heart in sharing your love for Meg.....we have loved and lost many creatures and I am grateful for the time spent with each one. All special and all loved just like your Meg.

Dear Bonnie Jo,

I've loved seeing Meg, her sweater, and all the other chickens. I am so very sorry that she is gone. Losing a loved pet is so hard, and we all must pay that price in return for all the joy they bring us. My thoughts are with you, Michele

So sorry Bonnie. I never realized how interesting and beautiful hens were until I met Meg and her crew. Gina

RIP, Meg! Lovely tribute to a special, beautiful chick! Those sassy leggings were something!

If you were to get another one, would the flock accept her? (I know it won't be Meg, but if she's an indication of her breed, it's better than yard art!) I've loved seeing the pictures of her.

She certainly was lucky to be a part of your family! Where else could she have had her own wardrobe?! I have no doubt that she had a wonderful life.

Bonnie, I'm so sorry to hear of Meg's passing. I have to Be honest with you ... I never thought of a chicken as a pet but you have taught me to look at "chickens" in a different light. I love hearing about your brood. Chickens sound like a curious bird to raise. Meg was beautiful. She will be missed.

I read your blog and love it. but lately I've been avoiding it for fear of your recent post. I'm sorry for Meg's passing. I hope she knew how lucky she was and how much she'll be missed.
