We lost Rosa this afternoon.
She'd gone through some hard times. As an ex-batt she'd been through one major change when a friend of ours rescued her. Then last Autumn one or more foxes took her flock, and she was the only survivor. She wasn't happy, wouldn't leave the dog's side, so we agreed to adopt her and added her to our young flock - which she promptly beat her way to the top of! But then she settled down and proved to be a real babe, sometimes seen mothering a sablepoot under her wing at night!
We don't know how old she was (her previous owner couldn't recall which "generation" she was from), but guess she was at least 4. The last few days she became very apathetic, lost interest in food, even treats, and today she just wanted to sleep. There was no sign of illness otherwise.
I think we gave her a happy few months. RIP, dear girl.
