    My sweet little Hoppy. He was 5 years old. He was always healthy. I believe he died of an heart attack last night. I can barely believe it. I am so sad I do not know what I am going to do with myself. Hoppy I love you.

    He had a little chicken diaper and would come in the house and watch tv and eat popcorn with me. When I gave him a bath he would roll over on his back in the towel and just look so comfortable drying off. Just last week he jumped up on my bed to sitby me.

    Thank you Darlasmum.

    I am just beside myself. I would get rid of all my chickens just to have him back.

    I'm so sorry! At least you had for those 5 years. So many chickens don't get to make it to the ripe old age

    Thank You KDailey








    He has been through so much with me. I was hoping he would live to be 15 or 16 yrs old. [​IMG] I have more pictures of him then all my "pretty" chickens combined.

    Kris,
    I am so, so sorry for your loss! [​IMG]
    It is never easy losing any animal, especially one that you are really close to. [​IMG]

    Thank You so much for your well wishes. I somehow feel that if this thread keeps going I can hold on to him a little longer. It just doesnt seem right that he passes with so little notice. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank You for your sweet thoughts. I think I am going to go have a good cry now. [​IMG] It doesnt seem right that the songbirds are singing and everyone is carrying on as usual.
