Raya was a wonderful loving chicken. She loved to jump on my lap, shoulder and sometimes my head. We were able to get to know her for about six months before she got the Marces disease. Her best friend died of the same disease two months before her. At that time we did not know what it was until she was brought to the doctor’s office. When Raya started showing symptoms we knew what it was. Took a different form and was so sad. Thank you to everyone who helped in her easy death. I hope that research can figure out a vaccination to help all chickens from getting this disease. Such a horrible disease.
A donation was made in Raya's memory and the memorial was created on January 17, 2020.
