NBS Pet Story: Pet Rooster

Ever thought about having a pet Rooster? Maybe you should. Sara Edwards, a Troy designer lives on expansive land north of Metro Detroit.

She reminiscences, “I got Charlie, a Red Sussex Rooster, as a little chick from the Marlette stock yard in 2008. I raised him from a wee little chick into a huge lovable rooster. He was so cleaver, he knew the sound of my car. Everyday day when I came home from school he would come running from across the yard as soon as I pulled in the driveway. He loved to be held and would just fall asleep in your lap.”

Who knew Roosters were such lovable companions! Sadly, he passed away in 2012, but Sara can still recall the happy clucking and calls from Charlie.
