Thank you, Isaiah. Deacon is back in that coop tonight.

He fought at the fence with Atlas awhile but realized it was stupid and quit. He seems scared of those hens and hasn't made a move on any of them. In fact, he's sleeping in a nest box tonight, something he's never done, with Rita behind him in the nest, and Georgie on the edge in front of him. Georgie used to roost beside him way back before I had to remove him from Ike's coop and she's back to her usual routine, I guess.
Deacon wanted even more petting than usual tonight. He's realized that his daddy is not there, really not there anymore, and it's sort of unsettled him. Here is a short video I made of me petting my sweet boy, trying to comfort him.
