Bye Bye Beryl

This is our Beryl.  One gorgeous chook, and a very brave one today too!

I let them all out at 7.30am including her, so that she could have a drink and something to eat.  At 9.30am, I picked her up and we had a last hold before I put her in a big box with some straw and corn, and we put her in the boot of the car.

Several hours later, after being taken down the A1 at 65mph and round and round the roundabouts of Milton Keynes and then over multiple speed bumps, I have to say that I was a little apprehensive about having a look in the box when we drew up at the lady's house in Bletchley.

I needn't have worried!  Within minutes, Beryl was happily pecking around in the run which the lady had prepared for her, and was looking quite interested in the other chooks living in the house next door.  The new owner is a very nice chicken-keeper, and her hens look to be in excellent health, so I am sure that Beryl will be in good hands.  She will be gradually integrated into the group which is very small, and they are all "special" in one way or another.  I have the lady's mobile number so I think we'll keep in touch!

Aww, I know it's sad but it must be absolutely lovely to know that she's gone to a great home. X
