    He was taken by a predator during the night-most likely a fox or coyote. No sign of a struggle, no pile of feathers or body parts. He was simply whisked away during the night. I won't go into details. No need to.

    He will be missed.

    I'm so sorry. In tears up here; he was the perfect rooster. So sad for you and his girls.

    RIP, STAN THE MAN
    ALL YOUR LADIES AND ALL YOUR ADMIRERS WILL TRUELY MISS YOU [​IMG]

    Even though he was not my rooster, I, too, like most every other BYC member, loved Stan the Man. It saddens me to have to say goodbye. I am assuming everyone else feels the same way. I made this mere little memorial to him; as a memorial to a brave and wonderful rooster. I feel that I am not alone in saying this. I feel that I am not alone in tearfully saying... goodbye, dear Stan the Man. May you rest in peace.

    I am sure, wherever you are, you are in a better place, now.
