He was my baby and I'm so sad today. He was gimpy for about 4 1/2 years now from getting in a fight with a dog protecting his girls when he was young, and I nursed him back. Since nursing him when he was healing from a broken leg, he and I bonded. I even brought him in the house and put covers on the furniture when he was sick so we could sit and watch TV together at night. This afternoon I realized I hadn't heard him crowing all day and I looked everywhere for him. I found him under the steps to my porch. I feel so sad I wasn't there with him. Just a couple days ago, he was having a crow off with the other neighboring roosters in the area. I was laughing at him because he was making sure he got the last word in. After almost 6 years of having him follow me around and coming to the door for special attention, it's going to be so weird with him gone.
