We are gathered here today to remember our friend Earl. Earl could crow with the gusto of a much younger rooster. He preened and strutted with a regal air and confidence that made him the envy of the barn yard. Now I will admit Earl wasn't always the easiest chicken to get along with. However, he was good at heart and was taken from us far too early. As we each remember the special moments we had with Earl, let us also remember to reach out to the special people or chickens in our lives and remind them how much we care.

I think Earl just needs more wet saddle blankets and more groundwork. Check his teeth and saddle fit and...oh wait it's a chicken.

Never mind, carry on ;)

Spring turned to summer
And summer faded into fall
And it turns out he was a missing
Rooster who nobody missed at all

Such shameful rejoicing texasgal while those of us that have bonded with the deceased are prostate with grief is highly inappropriate.
Earl will be sorely missed but hopefully he will have passed on those genes that made him so special..
Texasgal since jews do not have flowers at a funeral where do I send the fruit or muffin basket? Shalom

Somebody call the 9-1-1!

We have rooster named Marvin, and he's really friendly. He'll eat out of your hand.
Mary got eaten by something.
Maybelline got sick, Then stepped on by my horse a few months later
Maddie was the dinner of some wild critter
Matilda is the only chicken left.

But now we have two baby turkeys(Turkey-Lurky and Butterball/lunch meat(name is still being decided:) and a baby chicken (Chicken Little).
