Gaia passed away from unknown causes last week. We found her in the outdoor enclosure. There was no sign of trauma, only some blood in her mouth. If you have any idea what this might be, please let us know. We have no idea what caused her death, but we do know that we’ll miss her. She was a very sweet and affectionate chicken.
We think she was the first to lay an egg and that is why we named her Gaia (after the primordial Earth-goddess). She’ll be missed.
