RIP Speckles

Recommended Posts

RIP Speckles, 2/27/18 to 9/9/2020. She died as a result to the fire set a few blocks from my house on Weds.
She was an endangered breed, Speckled Sussex. I raised Speckles since she was 2 days old. She, like all of my pets, are my babies. It doesn't matter if they are a dog, cat, or chicken, I love and spoil all of them more then I did for my human ones.
Speckles laid every day and was one of my winter layers. She was one of my lap hens, that would enjoy pets while telling me what's going on in the flock. Some times Speckles would lay an egg on my lap. She'd follow me around the yard while talking up a storm demanding pets. When she'd molt, her feathers would have more white tips then before. Her sisters and the hen that helped to raise her (Feisty) miss her very much. Speckles has been gone for a few days now and they are still looking and calling for her.
 
I know there is a chance that Feisty will go broody once she relies that Speckles is gone as she has done this in the past. I'm researching endangered breeds and thinking of getting one each: Speckled Sussex. Delaware, and 55 Flowery hen. The question is if where I get my chicks is still standing and have them.
