This morning we found a very tragic sight at the shelter. It appeared that all of the chickens at the shelter had been killed. Every one of them. Our hearts were devastated. They have been out there for so long, and everything has been fine. The neighboring ranches have chickens running free day and night. Sadly, last night something came in and mass murdered them. After searching diligently for any survivors, April and Larry found Mrs Crow. We are extremely sad to tell you that Crow was found dead, he will be greatly missed. We are thankful that Mrs Crow is still OK.
Even Parcy and Mr T seemed sad with the loss of all their little friends. No more chickens roosting on Parcy’s head or running around between Mr T’s feet.
Today was the day to bring the slaughter pipeline horses to the shelter. This will be their last trailer ride until they find homes. It was nice to have them all unloaded safely at the shelter. As Tawnee said “For once I was too busy to take any more pictures.”
It was nice to see them relax and settling in at the shelter. Each one is so precious! We are very excited about the outflowing of support and homes that are offered. We still have quite a few that need homes, so if you are interested in one, please contact us.
Once all the chores were done, a wonderful surprise happened. Buffy the rooster was found alive! You could tell he had been through a bit of a battle, but he was safe. He must have spent all day in hiding, he was so scared. He is one lucky little guy! Preventions were made to keep the two lucky chickens alive and well.
The sunset at the shelter this evening was absolutely spectacular.
