sad chicken news

so a few days ago we lost one of our adult chickens. i hope it was just old age. but we went out to feed them and i only counted seven chickens eating. so i started looking for the last one because whittnee a few days earlier had shut the pen gate and one did not make it in for the night and had to sleep outside the coop. i could not find it. then Natalie found it in the hen house. it was laying down with its eyes closed and not with us anymore. i hope it was not in much pain. we have only had the chickens for a few months and it was sad to loose one. the hen was old i am sure it was her time. thanks chicken for the eggs given.
