    I lost my Australorpe Tuck today. I am not sure what happened to Tuck. I had moved him from his small coop to the big coop, and he just seemed to give up on life. Is it possible that a chicken can get depressed? We tried everything to cheer him up. We even put him back in his old coop. This morning I went to say good morning to everyone, and DH was carrying him out. I am so sad that I lost him.
    This was my Tuck

    What a beauty. I'm so sorry for your loss; I lost my SLW Rocky last night. For such small creatures they surely do leave an awfully big hole in our hearts, don't they?

    When we lose a chicken, for many of us, it's like losing a member of the family.

    My deepest sympathy to you and Tuck's family.

    Thank you everyone. Yes they do leave a very big impression on us. Tuck was a very good protector for his girls. I will miss him greatly. I at least have Tuck's son that I hatched out this spring. Hopefully he will be as protective as his father.

    [​IMG] I am so sorry to hear of Tuck's passing. He sure was a handsome fella. I am glad you have his son.
