Tyler

by Nyomi Diaz
(Durham, North Carolina)

My dear rooster... When I first had him from my incubator I fell in love with him and his personality and everything.

So once he got a bit older, that's when I saw all of his personality. He would chase me around the yard playing together and cuddling. He always greeted me every day after school.

He was a Buff Orpington. He was a very handsome rooster. He likes feet, he was very gentle and smart.

He died of natural causes. I really don't know exactly what happened because I was in school during the time he passed. It didn't affect my parents as much it did me I cried all night long. Everyone was like "it's just a chicken".

And Tyler, I really, really love you. I will never forget you everyday. I think of you every day. I pray for you, and no matter how much chickens I have, you will always be my favorite and my number 1. You have a very unique personality I never saw in other chickens I have.

Mommy will always love you. ❤

A lovely tribute.
by: Cath

Thank you so much for your lovely tribute, Nyomi. I so agree with you – Tyler was never "just a chicken". He was a much loved personality, and it's obvious you are missing him badly.

Remember that you gave him the best life, and he knew he was loved. Not all chickens are that lucky.

RIP, Tyler. You were very much loved, and you are sadly missed.

Henrietta The Fabulous hen!

by Tracey Donohoo
(Independence, Kentucky )

Henrietta was the most amazing chicken. I swear she understood me. I'd tell her time for bed, and she would go to the pen while looking back at me bawling as giving me some break! Lol!

She was protective of me, she would attack other hens if they didn't listen to me and fight me to get in the pen. At first it was a joke, but then I noticed she really was getting on them and protecting me. I'd be gone for the day, come home, pick her up and she would lay her head on my shoulder and bwak real low – like she was saying I love you and missed you!

She was killed by a hawk. My heart has been broken since. Some may think it's silly, that "it's just a chicken", but she was more than just a chicken. She was my friend. A friend don't have to be human or a dog or cat, chickens can make a great friend too.

Rest in peace, my sweet Henrietta. You are missed.

Henrietta sounds like such a special chicken, Tracey, and I'm so sorry you have lost such a friend. I hope you can remember all the good she brought into your life, and also that you gave her the best life she could have had.

RIP, Henrietta. You were special, and you will always be remembered.

TooToo The Beautiful Loving Rooster

by Saaniya Jackson
(Delhi, India )

I lost my beautiful boy Tootoo yesterday evening 27th September 2022, at 5:30pm

He was all well this day, healthy and very active chasing me all over. But suddenly he started coughing at 5pm. I can see his comb and wattle turn purple and suddenly he passes away peacefully in our arms without struggle.

He was my world. I still can't believe he's no more.

He was 5 year 3 month old, so charming and daring – a fighter. He had a big huge comb due to his leghorn breed which we removed surgically in 2018. He loved his life, his box, his pink rugs and his food bowl with his glass.

He lived a happy long life, but it seems short when it comes to end. I feel bad, heartbroken and empty. He was my kid, my baby, my heart.

His memory and love live with me forever, and I know you will come back to me soon.

Tootoo, Son Of Saaniya Jackson.
16 June 2017 to 27th September 2022.

RIP Tootoo.
by: Cath

I am so sorry for your loss, Saaniya. It is always hard to lose one of our flock, and when it's one who has been so important to you makes it even harder.

Remember that Tootoo lived his best life while he was with you. He was loved and cared for, and as you say, he had quite a long life although it seems too short.

RIP, Tootoo. You were loved, and you are missed.

Cami and Safi

They were two of my best friends for nine years.

I saw them first time nine years ago. They always knocked on the door for food. When I was not feeling well, only they made me feel better.

3 months ago, Safi suddenly left us alone. When I went to visit her in the evening, she was lying on the ground and not moving. After that, Cami became a little depressed, but gradually she got better.

Today, when I went to visit her, I saw that she was bleeding. She couldn't even walk. I don't know what happened. 1 hour later, she left us alone.

Now that I am writing this, I am crying. I don't know how much she suffered.

They were always my best friends. I loved them very much. I will always miss them.

I'm so sorry for the loss of both your lovely hens. It's such a shock, specially when you have had them for such a long time.

Please remember that while they were with you, they lived their best life. You cared for and loved them, and they were safe and happy.

RIP, Safi and Cami. Fly high, little hens.

I will never forget you, Boo!

by April Conway
(Sault Ste Marie, Ontario)

Losing our pet Boo has turned our life upside down.

She had such a wonderful quirky personality. She would greet us at the door and do tricks for snacks. The constant chattering was so comforting and became something we got used to in our everyday life.

Her presence was always appreciated, and we always greeted her with joy. She bonded with our dog and cat and became a member of our internal household. She would always be company while cooking a meal or watching TV. She would always be sly in trying to snatch my jewels or my sandwich 🥪.

Boo was a travel companion and came with us on trips. She always brought joy to people when we went though the drive thru's! The loss of her has been absolutely horrible and we hoped this day would never come!

We love you Boo! Thank you for all the years of joy you brought us. You will never be forgotten. ❤️ You brought light into our dark lives!

Rest well and I hope to see you again!

RIP, Boo. You were very much loved, and you are greatly missed.

Fly high, lovely hen!

LB3

LB3 was named after someone and he was the 3rd Laura B. He was actually a really funny chicken and really good at protecting our hens.

He was my baby and he let me hold him like one. He had a great personality. We raised him from a chick.

We've lost a lot of chickens but I have never been as sad when they died as I was when he did.

He really was our best chicken.

I'm so sorry to hear about LB3 – what a great name! It's strange how we can have a lot of chickens but there's one that really stands out for us. LB3 was one of those.

I hope there will be others like him, though none will be the same of course. And I hope you can remember that while he was with you, he lived a full and happy life.

Memorial to the Magnificent Rooster Don T

by Daryl
(Belleville, MI)

Donald T, gentleman rooster

Donald T, gentleman rooster

As our first ever rooster, Donald was brought to our recently depleted flock of one Easter Egger hen named Chickalotta.

He came along with five young Rhode Island Red pullets, given to us by a local farm to help heal the loss of two of three hens (RIP to Goldie and Pasty Butt) to predators.

Seeing big Donald tower over all with his sturdy legs made my wife smile, even though it took some getting used to. Especially watching him mount the only breeding aged hen, our Chicklotta,who was indignant lol.

He became the protector, gentleman Adonis, and tidbitter extraordinaire to his flock.

When he missed role call this morning, he was found on the coop floor, his head inside the floor-level nesting box, with his beak in a puddle of broken egg. I found an egg-soaked downy feather in his throat..I wish had opened the coop earlier this morning.

You will be missed, Don T.

With love, Daryl, Eileen, Amy, Elias, Quintin ❤🐔🐣, and Kevo. 🐕

A lovely tribute.
by: Cath

I'm so sad that your flock has lost such a wonderful protector and provider, Daryl. He was such a handsome chap!

Please don't blame yourself. Sometimes these things just happen, no matter how carefully we look after our flock and no matter how much we care for them, as you obviously do.

RIP, Don T. You were a good rooster and you are much missed.

The babies I lost

Lavern

I have lost quite a few chickens, and each hurt as much as the last.

I can't express the love I have to be able to show my love. I won't be told "it's just a chicken." I named each of them, and each meant something special.

So I just wanted to list the ones I have lost over the last couple of years...

All our chickens are lovely, and it's always sad when we lose even one of them.

I am glad you can remember them with love and happy thoughts.

Thinking of you in your losses.

Susan

by Nyah Borski
(Colorado)

She was a sweet little chick. She was a Buttercup hen. I got her along with 5 others and she was a runt. I helped her get food and water as she was too weak to walk or stand.

Losing her to the common issue pasty butt was very hard.

I have her and my Easter Egger Veronica buried by a juniper on a quiet corner of my property.

I miss her every day, and I wish I could hand feed her just one more time. She had a little marking on her head that I look for in the clouds

I'm so sorry for your loss, Nyah. She was a lovely little chick and I'm sad she didn't get the chance to blossom into the lovely hen she would have been.

Fly high, Susan. You were loved, and taken too soon.
