    Did a bad bad thing today - got 2 roosters

    You know what? If I "didn't have hens"....I'd have a rooster for a pet. They are really cool! They are funny and I just am a pet-person! I don't raise chickens just for eggs. I like them.

    Sometimes it sucks to be nice

    Sorry you lost that wee one. I know the painful feeling! Lost my first one just a couple months ago. You tried to do good, remember that.
