    My perfect, precious, gorgeous little roo. He was laying in the back yard dead. There were feathers everywhere and he had bite marks around his neck but was otherwise intact. I am starting to think I shouldn't even have my chickens. that is two losses in the past few weeks and it hurts. I love each one of them so much. I don't know what killed either of them. I haven't told my kids yet. They are going to be devestated.

    Sorry for your loss. This is one of the hardest parts of raising chickens.
    The great life he had makes it worth it all in the end. Don't give up if love raising birds.

    I am so, so sorry. I know you're devastated right now (I just lost my wonderful Hawkeye, as you know), but please dont give up on chickens. Just let yourself grieve and keep going. They add so much to our lives. RIP, Sigmund.
