    I went out to let the chickens out to range and found my beautiful Black Minorca roo dead in a nest box. No injuries and no idea what happened. He was gorgeous! I am so bummed. The mate I have (the only female of the batch I ordered) faithfully lays every day, even now when the rest are going on hiatus. He was SO nice.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. [​IMG] Max was a handsome guy... It's always so sad when they go suddenly like that and we don't know why. E-hugs for you--keep Max fondly in your memories! [​IMG]
