    I am guessing this is just a 'chicken story' - I didn.t feel well this AM - let the flock out (1 roo and his 7 girls) at about 8 and went back in the house after scattering scratch and topping off water - just got up from an afternoon nap and decided to take out a handful of mealworms for treat - O My! Louie my 6yo roo lying on his side dead as can be! Not a mark on him! Hope was a quick stroke or cardiac event! RIP Louie you were a handsome devil and the very gentlest roo I've ever met!
