|Mrs, wearing a saddle to protect her|
Because she had been handled so much from birth, she was a very friendly and amenable girl. She was happy to be picked up, loved treats, and was never any trouble.
She stopped laying eggs a long time ago (although I thnk we did get a surprise one from her a few months ago).

We were even more surprised when she reached 4, last year, and then were further amazed that she came through last winter still looking bright eyed and alert.
We had assumed that this was likely to be her last year... but then I we thought that last year too.
She had a very long and, I think, happy retirement.

She was a lovely Girl.
