Sad morning

Filed under:General — eric @ 12:05 pm

It was a sad morning at the farm today, as we woke up to a dead rooster. It was laying in a heap underneath its roost in the coop with no wounds or anything. It looked like it died in its sleep and fell.

I took it into the poultry necrology lab in town to get a cause of death. The West Nile Virus has made it to the area, and birds have a rather hard time with it. Georgia’s the number one chicken producing state in the country. If that virus takes a liking to chickens, that’d be bad news for everybody.
