Angel (at Good Acres from Dec 2018 to May 2020)
Angel who was also known as 'Clucky' around the farm, was the sweetest little bird you could ever meet. No one knows how old she actually was but we assume she was an older bird. This very special girl was brought to us by a kind person who took her in when she mysteriously showed up on their front porch one winter day. Nobody in the neighborhood had any knowledge of her and she was wearing a little orange charm bracelet around her leg. Once the kind home owner let her come in the warm house the little feathered creature seemed to be very comfortable and familiar with the indoors of a human dwelling. It is likely, she was someone's pet previously but was taken out and abandoned. What a lucky little stray chicken to walk to just the right home where she received the help she needed. However, after almost one year, the kind lady who also travels at times decided to give us a call and see if Angel (then known as Chickie) could come and live at the sanctuary.
We LOVED this sweet white bird from the first moment we saw her! Because she showed up so mysteriously at the ladies house, we named her Angel. The nickname 'Clucky' was acquired shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, our rooster Simon would not allow Angel to move into the chicken house. To keep Angel safe, she received her very own night-time area in the 'human house'. She loved it and happily returned to it every evening after a busy day of picking around the farm. Angel was particularly fond of our pigs and often spent hours sitting with them in the barn watching over them as they snoozed.
Unfortunately, in the spring of 2020 we found that Angel was suffering from cancer. She passed on and was laid to rest in our Cemetery "Land of Forever" in May 2020.
