RIP Betty

I arrived at the farm this afternoon to discover that Betty had broken her own neck!!! she’d got her head stuck in the feeder. It was very upsetting, losing livestock in this way seems so unnecessary, foxes,yes I get that (sort of), disease, I get that too, but this, not fair, not fair at all. I’ve changed the feeder (again) and made some modifications to it so they can’t tip it over, which was why I’d changed it in the first place. Ho hum, she was a good bird, has laid all winter, sat on some fertilised eggs when broody, mothered the chicks and continued to lay. God bless you Betty and thank you.
