I'd planned on blogging about my weekend, my birthday, and Thanksgiving. However, this morning we lost one of our chickens. Dear Fingers (yes that was her name) was dead in the coop. We knew last night we were going to have to cull her, she was huddled down and didn't even move when Farmer Geek tried to pet her.

She had no feathers on her neck (no she wasn't a turken) and was all puffed up, but her vent didn't show any signs of egg binding. If there are any chicken experts out there with any theories, let us know please! I'm worried that we might lose the whole flock. (Or as we call them, herd of chickens.)
