Hopefully someone here will understand. Nobody else seems to... I gave one of my roosters away a little over a week ago. He was the sweetest, most docile, friendliest guy in my flock, so I figured he'd be fine in his new home. Apparently, tho- my sweet, friendly little roo turned into a psycho, literally overnight, and is only getting worse. The lady just messaged me, asking if I want him back. I told her to put him in her freezer- its pretty likely he'll just wind up in mine if I go get him, and its not worth the risk of someone getting hurt on the off chance that he'd be fine if he came home. Also, I think she should get at least *something* out of this ordeal, kwim? She did try to help him- and just got attacked by a rooster every day for her trouble. I feel horrible about the whole thing. I feel badly for the lady, because she seemed so nice and was excited to get him. I feel even worse for Willie. He didnt ask to be taken from his home. He was so trusting and easy going when I picked him up and put him in his crate that morning. He was even cool with it when I was holding him and looking around her set up. I dont understand what happened to him, but I feel like I did something wrong and his turning nasty is my fault. Like I shouldnt have given him away, and that I've ruined an otherwise happy bird. I know I'm being weird about this and I shouldnt get all worked up over "just a chicken." But I hatched him myself and he was my pet. I loved him. I honestly thought I was giving him a better life by sending him to a new home and hers seemed really perfect. Anyhow- now that all of this has happened, I'm scared to death to give away my other 2 that need new homes. They're pretty stand-offish, tho my EE is slowly coming around. My marans mix went after my feet yesterday (I kicked him for it and he's avoided me ever since). I guess its time to mentally prepare to have them butchered (something I really wanted to avoid, if I could). Thanks for listening.
