    My heart is breaking!! When I went to feed my feathered friends and let them out to roam, I noticed Big Daddy (my Yokohama Roo) lying lifeless on the ground. He was given to me by a friend that lost her coops during the April Tornadoes we had here in Alabama. He was her favorite Roo and quickly became mine. He made it through a deadly tornado but lost his life 6 months later. I'm going to miss that baby!! [​IMG] He's the one in my profile pic...beautiful baby!

    Thank ya'll very much. Today has been rough, but knowing I have people that understand makes it a little easier. I'm sure you know what I mean. There are folks out there that just can't understand and emotional attachment to something like a chicken or rooster. Atleast I know ya'll do! [​IMG]

    Quote:We definitely understand!! Our feathered friends are so much more than just livestock to us, and it hurts when we lose them! So sorry to hear of his passing.
