Farewell to the big guy.

Big Fella

Yesterday was a sad day as we had to say good-bye to Big Fella, our magnificent rooster. A couple of weeks ago, he started the day with what appeared to be something like a stroke. His left leg was unable to support him and he fell a couple of times, spending most of that day sitting around.

He’s been managing to get around since then, but was struggling to maintain his balance. More to the point, he was unable to do his “Job”. Yesterday however, he took a turn for the worse and we couldn’t work out whether he’d lost his sight or was just very confused/disoriented, behaving very uncharacteristically. An obviously distressed bird.

He will be sadly missed as he was a wonderful gentle giant, popular with all our guests and is present on many a holiday snapshot!
