Bloom

Bloom was a good chicken. She ate all her food, played well with others and laid the cutest little eggs you ever did see. Her hobbies included eating slugs, taking dirt baths and digging up plants.

Bloom is survived by countless siblings, living all across the continental US and anywhere else the hatchery ships. Her friends, Mourning Glory, Despondent, Bereaved, Forlorn and Woebegone will have a private memorial service at their home this afternoon.

We'll miss you, Bloom, and hope there is a heaven for chickens.


Pictured by the Japanese footbridge in the garden of her home on Cape Cod, before she accidentally invited a hawk to come for tea.

That is sad, what a beautiful chicken.

(((heavy sigh))) I now officially declare this "Cape Cod Bloom Day". May she rest in peace.

Are you sure she didn't go on a "Loiuse" adventure? oh, i hope she just decided to go wandering.

Bella - sadly, Chris was called in to cart off the remains. It's the first chicken remains we've had to dispose of. I mean, properly bury. I mean, send to a farm in New Hampshire where she will live a long and happy life.

Also sadly, the kids would see right through that last one.

Bloom had a sweet fro. Sort of a chicken version of Linc Hayes from the Mod Squad.

Rest in peace, sweet chicken. She rocked an amazing do, I must say.

A shameless hussy just inviting any cute young raptor into her boudoir (sp?). Sheesh.
I'll miss Phyllis Diller.
