Just an update on Bearded Lady, she’s very sick and won’t be with us very much longer. She’s receiving great care and her favorite treats every day. I love her dearly and it’s my pleasure to give her all the happiness in the world.
Pets come into our lives and bring us joy with their feathers and fur, and even scales, so it’s our responsibility as owners to respect them as they make their way across the rainbow bridge.
I post this not to bring too many tears, but to show, in the right home, chickens are just as loved as any other pet. They are sweet, kind, smart, and loving. If you have a child allergic to cats or dogs, maybe they need a lovely chicken in their lives.
Chickens can be taught tricks and will follow their loved one everywhere. They can even take baths when needed. In fact, if they are raised to take baths, they actually kind of like it (or at least they will tolerate and not fight it too much). They don’t take up much room and will snuggle with you just like a cat or dog.
Although Bearded Lady has been with us for only 1 year, she brought so much happiness to me and my family. She will be missed very much.
On Wednesday I’ll be contacting the right people to help me give her a peaceful rest. I will be by her side letting her know she was loved.
Until next time…be safe, be kind, and always be happy.
