OK, you guys, I finally did it...I rehomed my beloved rooster, Edward. : hit I'm heartbroken, and I'm guilt-ridden, because it was ME who couldn't stand to hear his singing at 4:00 every morning, not the neighbors. He's such a sweetie in every other way - I handled him every day so that he would be gentle to people, and he's so responsible with watching his hens. He made me really cry last night when he found a patch of wild strawberries, and instead of eating them all himself like a hen would do, he clucked his girls over, and presented the berries to them. It was just too sweet! Oh! Yes, I found a fine home for him, but you know...other than a koi that outgrew my pond, I've never given away any animal, and certainly not one I saw being born and cared for from the first minute of life!
