RIP Scrawny Chicken

Matilda the buff in the back left
About two weeks ago, 
my mother asked if I had counted the chickens.
Immediately, I knew I'd be missing someone.
Turns out there was a pile of orange feathers near the barn
and I was missing a buff orpington.
While sad that I lost a chicken,
it at least was the scrawny one named Matilda
and not Bertha who has personality in droves.
