I know there is a lot of sad things going on in the world that really do make this seem like such a little thing in the big scheme of things, but it is sad anyway. Miss Noisy has passed away to the big Chicken Heaven in the Sky. I found her yesterday morning, in the barnyard, all wet from the series of thunderstorms we had the night before.
I know this is part of farm living. Things are born and they die and it is just part of the wheel of life. But I just don’t get it sometimes. Why Miss Noisy? Why now just a couple of weeks after returning home from her Big Adventure? What happened? Why didn’t she go into the coop with the rest of the hens when it got dark? When the storms hit, why didn’t she just stay where she was? Was she lying there when I closed the coop door? Was it so dark that I missed her? As with all accidental deaths on the farm, I take some of the blame. Poor Miss Noisy. She deserved better.
