BEFORE THE CROWD GATHERS

Here is one more post before the family starts arriving:

You know that Rooster Owen managed to make the long hard journey home after overcoming an unknown predator. This determination allowed him to go to his final rest in the chicken house surrounded by his feathered friends and family.

RIP Rooster Owen
April 8, 2007 to August 10, 2008.

You had an amazing life and you were an example for overcoming obstacles just like your human namesake.

    Hurrah for the two Owens.

    Little Owen and Rooster Owen.

    Both were courageous and deserve our admiration and praise.

    RIP

  9. Annie: Sorry to hear of the birds' bashing. It's is indeed hard to grow to a ripe old age out on the farm. The only one that ever did here was kept pinned up.
    I read on down and It would seem that things will seem really quiet for you after the 20th.
