"King" the White Rock Rooster
We were saddened today to find King dead in a pen with several roosters. The culprit J.R. had to go. I've secluded him in a makeshift jail for months. I even gave him his own flock of hens. Nothing ever seemed to work. He was just crazy mean to other chickens be they hen or rooster. He put my precious "Spot's" eye out and almost took the other out. He killed the young rooster of King's and now he has killed "King". He had to go.
"Spot" The Barred Rock Rooster

He is quite the character; not as much so as he used to be when he could see better.
I don't have a picture right off hand of "Junior" King's Son. I'll put one on here when I run across it for you to see. He was a miniature version of "King".
" J. R." The Culprit!
This was taken a year or so ago but his feathers had grown and his plumage was gorgeous.
Once before we knew he was so mean we were to give him away but something happened and we didn't. I guess now I'm glad because he could have caused some damage to his new owners' flock.
It is a sad loss but a necessary one. My grandpa would have rung this one's neck the first time he hurt another like he did Spot...I guess I'm an old softie.
Sad day as I actually say good bye to two roosters. King was such a beautiful white mild tempered rooster. He stayed the cleanest in the coops and he was white. A grand bird! The White Rock and the Barred Rock are gentle giants.
