Today we took our second EE cockerel to a new home with ChickaD. While I'm sure he will be treated well and have a wonderful life at his new home I was suprised at how sad I was to see him go! Yesterday I watched him lay in the sun, chase bugs and dust bath with his three girls and tears came to my eyes. Sunny is such a sweet, gentle roo who survived surgery at 4 weeks old and let my two daughters carry him around. He is good to his chicken ladies and watched them faithfully. It was never our plan to have roos but we ended up with 2 so we got 2 more young pullets last month and the girls needed more space. Our neighbors also were not happy about the crowing. Despite knowing all along that he wouldn't always be with us I am missing Sunny already! Thank you CickaD for giving him a good home! Who else has had to say a sad goodbye to a chicken?
