    olp_63 Chillin' With My Peeps

    Tonight I went out to put the chickens to bed, and I saw my little Sebright rooster dead on the floor. [​IMG] He was my favorite chicken. He was so sweet and I loved going out to see his adorable face every day. There were times when he would get picked on by the other chickens or get cold outside and I would bring him inside the house and sit with him, feed him treats, he used to be so scared of me but we were really making progress. He would actually enjoy sitting on my lap, enjoying his favorite treats or just me petting him. I'm so sad...All I can think of is my poor baby out in the coop and all the others ganging up on him. His whole head was crushed when i found him.....[​IMG] why did this have to happen?

    Animals do not have moral values, rules or laws, olp_63. Sorry you lost your little guy.

    wow.
    That had to be horrible for you to find. Sorry for your loss. I've said it before...I hate when they remind us they are animals.

    I am so sorry for your loss. [​IMG] I also wish I could explain why it happened, but I'm sorry I can't. It is so hard when we lose and animal that has touched our lives and hearts. [​IMG]
