We lost Miss May in August, apparently from the same thing that her sister, Olive died from. I took her to the state vet for necropsy, and it turns out she had lung tumors. She was becoming such a beautiful lady; I would have loved to have seen her develop further, but such is the life of a chicken keeper. So, in mid-November we added two new girls. They are S.B.E.L.'s (Super Blue Egg Layers), also known as Sapphires. They are a hybrid of Legbar and Leghorn, and lay large light blue eggs prolifically. These came from Double D Ranch. Their names are Lily-Belle and Daisy-Mae.
