R.I.P.

No Wordless Wednesday today.

This evening, on my way to lock up The Ladies for the evening, I wanted to check the trap in the garden to see if by chance I managed to catch Baby Bunny #3.  I was stopped short in my tracks when I saw Banana lying on the ground.  Dead.

My stomach dropped to the ground.

I was just watching her running around the yard with the others only an hour or two earlier.

I picked her up and looked her over – she was whole.  There were no signs of chewing or cuts or other signs of mauling.

The only conclusion I can come to is that possibly she ate something poisonous and it killed her.

I wrapped her in a tarp.  Tomorrow I will bury her.

Rest in Peace Banana – you were a good chicken.
