Then a day later, Pender, our rooster, sounded like he was getting bronchitis.
The day before yesterday, gorgeous Pender was dead.

This morning he arrived with a rooster, exactly as I had ordered. He again apologized for his part in Penders demise and said he hoped the new rooster would work....but if the rooster didn't work out, he would keep looking until he found one I would like.
So far, the new rooster has been doing okay. He explored the yard and introduced himself to the hens in the traditional rooster manner (he mounted as many as he could in rapid succession). He let me pick him up and pet him without a fuss.
I have named him JJ.
We'll see how he works out.
