R.I.P. Myrtle (April 2, 2006 - July 18, 2008)
It is with great sadness that I must announce the passing away of Myrtle the chicken. My blog made her an international star with lesbians and the right-to-life crowd. Myrtle tried in vain to be a setting hen. After giving her two tries to hatch eggs into little baby chicks, I had to break the news to her that Rocky was shooting blanks.
Myrtle will always be remembered for not minding getting a little dirty. While the other hens laughed at her setting obsession, Myrtle would always turn the other beek. She fought tirelessly and in vain to be a mother.
Myrtle was born on April 2, 2006. Pictured here are the baby chicks adopted from the local feed and supply store. Myrtle is one of the gold chicks shown in the picture.
E.Shrew found Myrtle dead half way under the hen house this morning. He promptly buried her under an old oak tree on the farm. If you wish, you may pay your respects to Myrtle here.
