It was a sad day today. We recently learned that Gus-gus was a roo. In the last week I've seen Mohawk, our other roo, going after him every time he would get close to one of the girls. I didn't let Gus-gus into the coop as I was afraid of a cock-fight and I figured Gus-gus would not fair well.
Well, I'm not sure what happened, and I'm sure it was NOT Gus, but I found Mohawk under the roosts this morning. Sigh. I have no idea how old he was when we got him, so I'm assuming that he just died of old age. And now I can't get Gus-gus into the coop to guard the girls.
Hopefully, there won't be some rogue racoon or something coming in tonight.
Goodbye, Mohawk! You were a good rooster!
