Red is one of the roosters that live here on the grounds with the other members of the barnyard.
Although he is just as large as the rest, and he also fights to take care of his hens...............
Red has always been the most quiet of the bunch. Although I have quite a few hens..................
more than one rooster is always too many. However, I have not wanted to give my roosters to just anyone because I want to make sure they continue having a good life. At my husband's workplace, a coworker has just stepped into the new life of "raising chickens" and has been in search of a rooster for his handful of hens. After hearing about how much he enjoys taking care of his new flock, I decided that Red would be a deserving and perfect rooster to join his group.
So into the carrier and off to town we all went. When the man took his first look at his new rooster, it was just like watching a kid with a new first bike. He was so excited and so happy to see what a handsome rooster Red was. He then started to tell me about he new home and of the new life that Red would be living.............out in the country...........in a yard of green grass, shaded by two large trees..............with a flock of hens for only him to watch over.
I know that Red was scared and confused at first, but I am sure today, that he is probably crowing and showing off his tail feathers for his new lady friends.
He no longer has to fight for his food or for his title............he is the ruler of his roost.
I feel good to know that he will be well loved and taken care of.
How about you?
Have you ever decided to let a pet go to someone else?
Did you worry?...............
or did you feel glad with your choice ?
I would love to hear.
