(Gallus gallus domesticus)
We have a large number of chickens at the sanctuary, as sadly these animals have become throwaway "objects" to many people - in fact, almost all of our chickens were literally dumped outside our gates or physically thrown over the fence! Please Note: we are currently at capacity and sadly cannot take in any more at the moment.
Although we do have some hens, the majority of our chickens are roosters (male chickens). As roosters can be noisy, aggressive, and don't lay eggs; they are usually undesirable to people - but we love our beautiful, feisty boys!
We have a variety of breeds, such as Cream Legbar, Sussex, Bantam, Maran, and several other mixes. They all have very different personalities, likes/dislikes, temperaments and behaviours, and are an absolute joy to care for!
Meet the Sheep
Forever in Our Hearts
Although these beautiful chickens are no longer with us and are missed so very much, they live on always in our hearts and minds. As long as we continue to speak their names and tell their stories, they are still with us and will never be forgotten!
