Well, thanks to a thread on here, I went on petfinder to look at chickens and saw this guy:

I just filled out an application. If he hasn't already found a home, he may be coming to live with Ramblin' Rose and the Annas.

I hope you get him, mlp. I know he'll have a good home if you do!

Rose and the Annas are very good natured girls, so I think he will be fine even though he's been de-beaked. That's why he caught my eye - because of what's been done to him.

This is Ramblin' Rose (so named because she tends to go walkabout) and the girls' house, right after it was painted. It dosn't look as good anymore - they've spent the last year and a half chipping away all the paint they can reach - another paint job is on my to-do list.

I wish I had property, so I could have a menagerie....

Wow, I really like that they mention factory farms in his description. I hope you get him!

Yes, this is apparently primarily a cat rescue - it was started to provide low cost spay/neuter for cats, and they have volunteers who ferry cats to various clinics for the spay/neuter. It's interesting that they ended up branching out into chickens, ducks and guinea fowl too.

Heh. If you promise to outlive me by at least fifteen years, I'll adopt you. I've gotten to the age where I worry about who will take care of everyone when I drop dead - some of the parrots should certainly outlive me, even if I make it to 94 like my grandmother, or 89 like my mother.

I thought that was really cool too! Reading that filled me with rage and joy at the same time, a very odd combination. Rage because of what's been done to him and joy because I know he's in amazing hands now. Way to go mlp! I really hope he comes home with you

I'm yours! If you adopt me, I'll look after everyone, but you'll have to teach me how, before you croak!

Plenty of time to teach you all about everyone - I'm not planning on croaking for a while yet.

He is coming to live with us!

I'm going to pick him up a week from Friday - I want to doublecheck the chicken house and yard this weekend and make any small repairs necessitated by the winter weather.

Great news! Do you plan to call him Snuggles, or do you have something else in mind? O and don't forget: pictures please!

A friend has suggested that I call him Captain Butler, because he's a dashing fellow who's been through the war and will have a bunch of flirtatious females falling all over themselves. She says Rose and the Annas can always call him Snuggles when they're whispering sweet nothings in his ears.

I'll wait until I meet him in person. He's about an hour and fifteen minutes away, so we'll have a quiet car ride to get acquainted. And yes, I will post pictures.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
