Ruby was a buff Orpington hen whom we'd had since she was a chick. She lived among our main flock with her hen friends and a rooster. When Ruby was three years old, she molted her feathers early, during the summer, and she seemed a little slower

Noted with a tear for Ivy, Oak and Ruby, may they RIP. At least they all had some time of freedom and I just love the fact that this huge picture is on Times Square!
Thanks for sharing this wonderful story Cher.

Lovely story, just showing that animals can figure out how to get along so much more than humans apparently can. Can't stand the Purdue factory farming system, which compels farmers working for it to only raise a type of chick that can't grow normally, in darkened and filthy over-crowded sheds where the chickens NEVER get out, ever. Purdue has nothing to crow about!
