Way to Go!

Henny Penny Rooster was one of three month-old chicks being sold at a farm supply store in Columbia, Tennessee. They were crammed together in a small wire cage on a hot day before Easter. Henny Penny and his two brothers were all bleeding. When I asked what could be done to help them, the owner said they just wring their necks and toss them out. So I said, "I'll take three bleeding chicks to go, please." – Laurie Montgomery. This winning photo appears in the 2012 Chicken Run Rescue Calendar for July.

Fuzzy was brought to our sanctuary in December 2010 by a very nice family in Northern Virginia to whom he was given as an "Easter gift." The family loved him but couldn't keep him in their urban home once he became a large duck, so they drove him to UPC where he has thrived in our care ever since. Fuzzy follows us around the yard while we work. He has a loud breathing voice so we nicknamed him the stalker, but he's a very nice stalker. Fuzzy has his own blue pool to swim and splash in, and he gets along great with the chickens.
