Ok... I have/had the best rooster ever. He protected his girls, kept them together. Was gentle didn't tear up any backs. Just an all out wonderful Roo. Last week there was a daytime coon attack on my yard by a juvenile raccoon. He did his manly duty, saved his girls. No one was lost. A lot of lost feathers, and a sprained wing, and Mr. Fluffers got the worst of it. No external injuries, but apparenlty more injured than I thought. I have been treating him for about a week with special attention, antibiotics, poutlry drench. Standing guard so he can eat. He would let the girls eat all his treats, hes that good. I thought he was going to pull through. I was hoping. I buried him this morning.
Well done Mr. Fluffers....
I am so sorry about Mr. Fluffers Novaman. He was absolutely gorgeous! I know what you mean about those Fav boys. They are such great roo's. I love both of mine and know how they capture your heart!
RIP Sweet Honey! My blind girl who didn't survive the flooding Sept. 2011. You will be very missed by all!!! Honey is my avatar.
