awwwwwwwwwwww, what sad news. I loved reading about Mable and Ernest love story. cheers, parsnip
Indeed AP he was a loved little gentleman. Pleased for him he passed away in his sleep.
I'm so sorry Denise. Jx
Thanks Jessica xxx I will miss his little "Good Morning." xxxx
Oh how sad Denise - I always feel sad when one of mychickens dies - and he looks quite a character.
It's like losing a good friend. I'm sorry, Denise.
Ah, I'm sorry, Denise...he was a good looking boy.Jane x
Oh...... thats so sad. He was a magnificent fellow. Did he die of old age? Poor Mabel. Hope she doesn't grieve too long.Maggie xNuts in May
I think so Maggie, he was very contented. xxx
Aw...my little adopted buddy! Do you know what happened?
No Leslie - he just died in his sleep. Perky the day before but he was a good age. Dx
Poor Ernest, poor Mabel, hope she doesn't pine too much. Xxx
So sorry, Denise. He was certainly a handsome fellow. Your girls, especially Mabel, will miss him.K
Aw, sorry for you. Hope Mabel is ok.
Gone to rooster heaven. He was certainly beautiful. I know you will miss him. :(
Would you like another cockerel to replace him Denise? If so then please let me know as we have farmer friends who have several roaming round their yard and they are always pleased to give one away.
Always a sad time, losing a chicken. People think they are 'only birds' but they are so much more than that. I always snivel when one of mine goes.
So sorry. He was a handsome chap indeed. My neighbour keeps rescue hens and I love to see them running about. They all love them. When they sit outside in the summer, it isn't unusual to see one of the chickens sitting up on someone's lap! I love it when they sunbathe too, and scratch a little dip into the soil to sit in........ I do hope Mabel will be ok.... ))hugs((
I had to scroll back and say how sorry I am you lost your little rooster! I had a white leghorn rooster once, and I know you can get very attached to them! He was lovely!Thank you for hosting this awesome meme! This is my first time to participate!
Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
