|Happier Days in June with his barred rock "sisters"|
Rooster on left, lighter color feathers
My barred rock rooster passed away early yesterday morning.
I woke up at 5 a.m. and checked on him - he seemed fine.
When I woke at 8 a.m., he was gone.
I was home on Friday, and spent time with him.
He seemed happy when I sat and talked to him .
I would get a few clucks in return.
He fought a valiant fight, but whatever was ailing him
prevailed and finally took him on Saturday morning.
He was the most laid back of all 3 roosters
and I'm sad that he didn't make it.
On a lighter note, the flock is better balanced now
One rooster, five hens.
