My recently deceased little rooster was only recently acquired (about 3 weeks ago). He died protecting his flock from fox (coyote?). He was the only one they killed, though one of my hens is also injured. I got him from craigslist; this woman gave her little pet chicken to me for free, with a promise that I'd e-mail updates (pics, etc). I took a picture of him last week, and I'd like to send it to her. But do I tell her the fate of her little chicken? or do I leave her believing that her sweet little rooster is living out his days with his flock? What would you want if he was your chicken? ----------- UPDATE!!!! Ok, So I e-mailed her the picture and a beautiful heroic story of her little bantum roo... And she offered me her little blue silkie roo!!!! What an amazing person!! She said that most people just want to send them to freezer camp so at least he had a good fighting chance!!! I just love it when human-kind surprises me!!!
