~ Hatched ~
I hatched a little fluff ball
as cute as can be,
I held her, I loved her,
And let her sleep with me!
She was such a little sweetie,
when she came running to me,
Oh, how swiftly she has grown,
She was as cute as can be!
Then one morning
unbeknownst to me,
My little darling came running,
But OH NO, She was now a He!
I miss those snuggle mornings,
but alas it was not to be,
Now I have a BIG boy,
just to CROW with me!

Just a few days after writing this poem, taking his pictures and the video,
Melvin, Silver Laced Wyandotte died suddenly.
We believe his death was due to eating some Builders styrofoam which blew into his Run.
PLEASE keep Styrofoam away from your chickens and fowl!
