This morning my daughter and I discovered our beautiful Buff-Laced Polish hen, Phyllis Diller, deceased inside one of our nest boxes.
Phyllis was one of my family’s favorite chickens because of her high-society lady personality. She provided countless hours of entertainment with her silly antics and unique appearance, and some fun blog fodder, too: Phyllis Diller Blog Posts.
(These two photos were taken in March of this year)
I brought Phyllis home as a week old chick 4 1/2 years ago, and she quickly etched a special place in our hearts. She will be greatly missed.
Farewell beautiful Phyllis.
