Persistence pays off. I’m happy I can report that our brown Leghorn rooster (Roo) is in recovery mode now. For weeks I wondered if it was a hopeless cause. Everyone wondered when I would give up and sometimes I secretly hoped I would come out in the morning and find out he had passed in the night. But I never wanted to give up on him.
Roo always wanted to eat, especially watermelon. He was not resistant to taking medicine by eye dropper every morning and every night. Although it was a struggle to get baby aspirin in him 3 times a day. It was clear to me that he was not giving up, so I wasn’t going to give up either. I know persistence doesn’t always give you the desired outcome, but you always know you did all you could. This time I’m glad it paid off. I might be getting a little too attached to him.
