2016 goals

Our current goal for 2016 is to increase enrichment opportunities for our 47 current resident chickens.

Chickens are incredibly intelligent and social beings. They each have their own very unique personality.

Sammy- Sammy came to The Chicken Sanctuary because roosters were not allowed where he came from.

"Myrtle" - Myrtle came to us when a farm store call, concerned she was not doing well. Myrtle hatched with one eye and a cross beak requiring special feedings, but she more than makes up for it with her antics.

The Chicken Sanctuary started when I went to a local feed store just to pick up feed and I noticed a "meat" chick in the chick bin that was having trouble walking and being run over by all of the other chicks. I found that I just couldn't leave him there to die. No one was going to save him, I had to, I was his only chance, he had nowhere to go. The feed store let me take him for free since he was "probably going to die anyway." I named him Gerry and brought him to the vet and was instructed on physical therapy for him to do twice a day. Later on I ended up ended up getting him a cart from K-9 carts. Gerry was the reason that I started The Chicken Sanctuary for differently-abled, unwanted, or abandoned chickens, so they would have some place to go. We are now a 501c3 non profit organization and have 47 beloved permanent resident chickens.
