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.
