Gerald, Sunny and Ryan

Gerald, Sunny, and Ryan were the first three rescues at Farm Animal Refuge. These three roosters were relinquished to us by a family who ordered baby chicks through the mail. It is common for hatcheries to include baby roosters along with the female chicks either by mistake or to keep the female chicks warm during transport. Unfortunately, very few areas of San Diego County, CA are zoned for roosters. Thankfully, this family tried to rehome these three guys rather than have them destroyed, and they made their way to our rescue where they will live out their lives.
