So very sorry
by: Kim

I am so very sorry about the loss of your Russell. I completely understand your feelings of loss and how deeply you hurt having lost what becomes a member of the family. We lost one of our sweet hens that we got as a chick last spring and had lovingly raised. She was our favorite girl and losing her was so painful.

It will get better with time. Know he knew how much you cared about him and for him.

We got some chicks about a month ago and I'm pretty sure one of them is an accidental Roo. Reading your story confirmed what I already knew...... we can't possibly give him up even though we really didn't want a Roo. We will keep him and raise him with the girls.

Love and hugs to you during this difficult time.

So sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear about Russell, and so glad you rescued him in the first place.

All we can do is remember that, while he as with you, he had a good, happy and safe life. He was enjoying a delicious treat the very morning he died. He was never "just a chicken", and he will always be remembered.

I'm thinking of you and your family in your loss.
