Lefty hatched in late August 2006. He was a very cool, HUGE, rooster...
He always looked after his ladies. He was one of the first chicks to hatch when I moved to the farm.
Sadly, Lefty died today, peacefully. And I'm not sure why. We'll miss him... his ladies already miss him, too.
Oddly enough, Crazy Dark Brown Hen is raising some of his babies right now, and I have another handful of his babies in the coop, from the eggs we hatched after Crazy Dark Brown Hen abandoned her nest. Maybe one of his sons will grow up to be a good boy, like Lefty. Maybe.
