Our Chicken Rescues
We did not use to rescue chickens - we only have so many buildings!
And then we figured out how our waterfowl could liive with chickens and it was perfect for many years...until we got hit with the avian flu and we lost all our chickens and turkeys.
Before we can help many more, we need to build a separate facility for game birds for so many reasons...they eat different food and they get affected by things like HPAI very differently than our waterfowl. We are working toward getting back to helping as many birds as possible, but we need your help. Direct contributions to help us build a new building can be made here.
In the meantime, this page is pretty sparse, though we did make an exception for one very special girl, below.
You can sponsor one of our chickens for $20 a month, which provides them grain, corn for foot health, monthly deworming and treats. In addition to this we are always working on funding for medications and vet visits.
Jenny! Jenny was a "forest chicken." No, there is no such thing, especially for a delicate little thing like her, but one day, a couple going for a hike saw this brave girl come running out of the woods. It is pure luck that she managed to survive. After a lengthy quarantine in several places before coming to us (because we were in our fallow period after having HPAI), Jenny tested negative and has come to live her live with us. Since we don't have a dedicated game bird building yet, she is temporarily renting space from the peacocks. They are being good hosts, but she really needs her own place. Want to help her get there?
