Our sweet chicken Wilma got killed by a predator yesterday. She was a wonderful mother and left behind a few chicks. When she was killed Wilma had 7 chicks she had sat on and hatched. Those poor babies are still peeping for their mother. Of course, she was a farm favorite ( thats the only ones the varments take) and she is greatly missed.
One of the advantages and disadvantages of a farm is you get to learn about life and death
Wilma is on the left, with her mate Fresno.
at a young age and frequently. But one of the big questions we get asked by the children frequently is, will our dead animals go to heaven? Well, animals don't possess a soul. Man was created superior to animals and have the chance for eternal life. But, we never know. There are animals in heaven, maybe Wilma is up there laying heavenly eggs....lol.
