He was a Speckled Sussex cockerel, about 4 months old. Since he was born he was always chasing my finger, always there to be the first to greet me. I named him Mr. Speckles. He was sweet as pie and loved to be held, loved the attention and was never mean to anyone.....one of the only reasons I had an excuse to keep another Roo. LOL. He was just a special little guy. I noticed he was getting weaker, thinner and all I did for him did not help. He lost his fight this morning. I think I knew last night even though he seemed better. I had held him and kissed him and talked to him awhile. I don't even have a good pic of him, but he was special to me and I thought the least I could do for him would be to mention he meant something in his short little life.
