My dearest and oldest little bantam Gozzie, passed away in her sleep overnight.
Yesterday she spent almost all day sunbathing in the brilliant spring sunshine, scratching around in the gravel paths and getting lots of insects - and she even pulled a really big worm out of the lawn at 7am!
I am not sure of her age - she was at least 12+years old as she was one of my original bantams, together with Daisy who is still alive. I am not sure of their age when I bought them.
She gave us lots of pleasure, captivated us with her antics, and was the tamest, funniest teeniest little bantam you could ever wish for! She fitted in the palm of my hand!
I am sad that she has passed away, but I am absolutely joyous that she has lived to such a grand age, and packed every single day free-ranging and enjoying the very best life and living conditions, in the company of a contented flock.
