Here Lies the spot of a great rooster. One who always looked out for his hens and was a great rooster to be around. He was a handsome bird and always my favorite.

R.I.P. Bucky R.I.P.

It was about 2 months ago that I heard squaking and screeching in our pen so I ran out and I saw all the hens running in the coops and Bucky with blood covered all over him. I also saw a coon. Bucky was fightning the coon. I tried to get in there but my parents stopped me because they didn't want me to get hurt by the coon. So all I could do was watch and wait till my brother got home from the shooting range to kill the coon. by the time Chad (my bro) got home I knew the time for Bucky was little. Chad "executed" the coon and we got Bucky out of the run. It was not much but a hour later that Bucky had passed. He died protecting his hens. I don;t know what other rooster would do that. Bucky was the best rooster I have ever had. R.I.P. Bucky.
Here are some more of his pics.








As all people should, we must look forward to the future. We now have a new rooster in command. Bucky's son B.J. Also his new sidekick we adopted named Phoenix. Here are who is taking Bucky's place.
