Goodbye, Gerry Girl

Old girl Gerry (named after my aunt Geraldine) died before sunrise this morning. She was the last hen remaining from our original clutch of 25 that we received in the mail from McMurray Hatchery 5 years ago. (Yes, we took her with us cross-country from New York to New Mexico). Over the years she provided us with many delicious eggs and lots of baby chicks who inherited her gentle demeanor. We’ll miss her. -Tree
