The saddest day

We made our decision. The girls needed a better home. So, we said our goodbyes on Tuesday evening before supper. And, as things like this go, we even got 2 eggs earlier that morning. Sheesh. It's as if they knew what was coming! Way to make me regret my decision, chickens.

After pouring through more than 40 emails we received yesterday in response to our Craig's List add, we found a local guy with 7 hens of his own who was willing to add our four girls to his roster.
It sounds perfect. He lives north of the city, reassured us that he never considers his chickens as dinner options, and told us we could come and visit whenever we like.

So, an era is ending. But only for a little while! My husband promised we wouldn't be hen-less forever. For now, we'll be spending our time seeking out resources for farm fresh eggs as best we can and Beatrice, Virginia, Kelly Clarkson, and Ms. Benedict will be enjoying a new home where they can run and play and begin to lay their warm, brown eggs again.

Don't want to leave, but we both know
Sometimes it's better to go
Somehow I know we'll meet again
Not sure quite where, and I don't know just when
You're in my heart, so until then
Wanna smile, wanna cry
Saying goodbye
