My heart was heavy today. For some reason, I was thinking about Chocolate, the rooster that we rehomed this past Spring. I think a lot about him and see memories of him, like old movies scrolling through my mind. I can still remember how it felt to hold him, his wiry neck feathers and his strong feathered feet. His warm comb against my cheek. I wonder if he is happy? Does his family love him as much as I did? Is he spoiled? Is he alive? Does he remember me? Does he miss his old girls?
He was a gorgeous fellow that looked out so carefully for his girls. We just could not keep him, as he took his job too seriously. I waffled with the decision for months. I did my best to keep him. My experiences with Chocolate made me realize how much I truly do love these chickens as my pets. I don't think,even though I have tried, I will or could ever forget.
