“Mean Rooster” McMinn of Walton, West Virginia passed away suddenly on Monday November 9th . He had lived all of his life at McMinn’s Chickens In the Road Farm, being the second chick hatched and the first rooster of said farm. He was a spirited rooster who staked his ground, protected his flock and chased adversaries. Known far and wide, thanks to Chickens In the Road blog, he was both feared and admired.
“The Cockles of my Heart” documented his greatness.
His family describes him as “Always interesting but never friendly.”
Mean Rooster leaves a host of friends and family; the McMinn’s…Suzanne and 52, Ross and Princess, , his flock of hens, the gaggle of geese, the donkeys…Pocahontas and Jack, Giant Puppy, Dookie and Boomerang, Little and Kitten, the goat family…Clover, Nutmeg, Fanta and Sprite, the pigs…Sausage and Patty, and the sheep…Annabelle, Jester, Clifford, Rosalie, Josephine, Mocha and Cappuccino.
He will be greatly missed and always spoken of kindly in his passing.
