Splash left this world too soon. She was bred to be a pretty, laying hen - delicate, with fluffy feet and light blue eggs. She deserved to be loved for herself, not for what we could take from her. And for a while, she was loved for herself by Quincy and Todd, who cared for her and protected her. She deserved a long life full of friendship, enrichment and treats. But she was too fragile as she died yesterday. She is mourned by her chicken friends, by Quincy and Todd, and by people like me who had the privilege of meeting her. Rest In Peace, sweet girl. You can make a difference every day by choosing to leave eggs and chickens off your plate. Choose kindness. Choose love.
