Cream Legbar Chicken

RIP Betty – so long and thanks for all the eggs!

Sandy found Betty ‘asleep’ in the coop this morning. She was a feisty one – I’ve seen her chase pheasants out of the garden, not to mention the cats and dogs too.

It was June 2015 that we brought Betty, Rose and Marge, all Cream Legbars, back from Culzean. Sadly we lost Marge in fox attack in 2016, along with Ivy and Etta but Betty and Rose. She seemed pretty happy yesterday so can only assume it’s natural causes – not sure how long they’re supposed to live but am guessing 5 years isn’t too bad.

Lockdown put a halt to plans to get some more hens but now poor Rose is all alone we’ll have to see what we can do – don’t want her getting all lonely.

Here’s a wee montage
