Sweet dreams Little Tilly

My beautiful, precious little Tilly, you have no idea what a huge impact you have had on my life.
You were the sweetest little hen I have ever come across. You would frequently hop up onto the bench and clamber onto my lap for a cuddle, I have never known anything like it. You were such a gentle little girl, you would give me kisses all the time.
You have no idea what a massive hole you are leaving in our lives. You were with us for nearly ten months, and I hope I managed to give you a very happy life. I am grateful that you got to experience fresh air, grass under your toes, every season and every weather. You were loved, something you had never had before.

Rest in peace my precious little angel, Mummy loved you so very much xxxx

So sorry to hear you lost a hen. A special ex batt too. I lost one around a month ago, she died in the night in the nest box. I know how you are feeling today, I felt the same. Console yourself with the thought of 'as one door closes, another one opens'. You can now give another needy ex bat a retirement home for life.Out of the fifteen ex batts I have had, I have found there are alot of lovely little hens like your Tilly. They worm their way into your hearts big time don't they.

I'm so sorry about Tilly. It sounds like you gave her the best life a little hen could possibly have and she has left you with lots of happy memories. It's a fantastic thing that you and other rescuers do for them.

Sorry to hear about your hen, it's harder when they have such an endearing character. I lost my little Lola suddenly last week (the yellow budgie that was on my 'What's in a name' page) she was always so happy and lively. Poor Charlie looks a bit lost as she was his first Love!

Ohhh I love the picture of your African Gray. What a lovely bird! I have a senegal. My bronze wing pionus just passed away a few months ago.

Sorry to read of your loss in the post. :(

Thank you for your comment on my cards for the Meljen's blog hop. Good luck with the prize draw.
