I just wanted to take a minute to vent to a group who I know can sympathize. I had two roosters who were fine together for quite some time when one day, they decided they were not going to get along. I had made efforts to separate them but I felt I was not being fair to one of them who was separated more. He was a very good boy; not aggressive - just couldn't get along with the other rooster. I searched for a good family for him and thought I found a one but there was always a little something that bothered be about them. It was that I thought they would not watch over him as I would away from predators keeping him safe. But I tried talking myself out of that feeling thinking I was being too critical because I cared for him so much. And now I am so sad and guilt ridden that I did not go with my gut instinct to not let him go. He had not even been there a month when I just found out that he and the other hens had been killed by a predator. I have no idea why people cannot take the time and effort to treat their animals with the respect and love that they always show back to us. My heart aches so bad because I failed him and should have gone with my initial instinct to keep him. I know we learn from our mistakes but the pain and tears I feel for him so outweighs that learning experience.
