Countess Palatine Hedwig, 3, died Friday November 5, 2010, from complications from an extreme drop in temperature.

Hedwig, as she was affectionately known, was purchased at the Minnesota State Fair in 2008. She was a silver-laced Polish bantam hen and won 2nd place in her division. She was always the first to get a compliment and the last to get some food. Despite her bottom position in the pecking order, she went about her days with a quiet dignity. She is survived by her friends, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of York, and Marie Antoinette. She will be missed.

Her final resting place is, as of yet, undetermined.

We didn't spend enough time with poor, dear, Hedwig. Words cannot begin to express our sorrow at your loss. Cling to your friends for strength, at this difficult time, and hold tight to your memories for comfort.
Bereavedly Yours,
Cousin Alison
