Lately I've been dreading my parents calling me... it always seems to be bad news. Just a few minutes ago they called to inform me that my beloved boy passed away - they're not sure how it happened. He was fine this afternoon...my dad let the chickens out because the sun was out and it was warm, but when he went to put them back in, he found him lying in the grass.... no bites, no blood; they think either he choked or had a heart attack? He was only two years old and was such a sweet and lovable guy. I feel so horrible. I had 2 roosters but gave away one in order to make room for more hens. Now, that this one is gone [too], I guess the girls seem pretty lost and frazzled. RIP Spanky - I will miss you! May '07 -2/21/09 ^^^ the last picture that I took of him.
