Goodbye Runt

I went out to the chicken house this morning and found my old rooster dead.  It looks like he fell dead off the roost last night.  I will miss him, he was a wonderful old guy who lived a long and eventful life.  Cochins tend to find a special place in my heart, I am glad that he did not suffer.  My husband always tells me that they are just livestock. He admitted that he will miss Runt. I am going to start looking for a new rooster tomorrow, but I won’t soon forget my good buddy Runt.

So sorry to hear about your Rooster Buddy, Runt.  Sounds like he had a good life on your farm.  Whether they are feathered or furry, they do find a way into our hearts.
