Our lovely ladies

We currently house and care for 46 gorgous girls. The majority of these ladies are ex-battery and “spent” hens rescued from egg farms, but we also have a couple stray, special needs, shelter, and slaughterhouse/”meat” rescues as well. The ex-batts, which are one of the main focuses of our rescue, are a particularly impressive group. After their former lives crammed tightly in wire cages––never about to feel the sun on their backs, walk freely on the ground, scratch at the dirt, take dust baths in sand, or enjoy many of the behaviors natural to them––they develop into such trusting beings with bright personalities and a deep enjoyment of their new lives.

The crazies (ducks)

We currently house and care for nine ducks from a variety of different backgrounds. Ducks have been our founder’s favorite since she was 12 years old and spent every day caring for her best friend, Everett, a Pekin who became part of her family as a result of a school hatching project. She and our oldest resident, Buster, have been together for six years. Our flock of entertainers also includes special needs (Remmie Remmerton, Bert, Ernie), shelter (Daphne, Dahlia), and slaughterhouse (Daisy) rescues.

Pigeon-y pals

We currently house and care for 12 pigeons and one dove. Our founder developed a passion for saving this new sort of friend in the spring of 2014 when she drove five hours to pick up what was supposed to be a rescued duck, but turned out to be a baby pigeon, from a girl in Phoenix, AZ. One rescued pigeon soon turned into two when Phoenix drew an injured racing pigeon to our property, and two turned into 12 from there. The majority of our pigeons are lost racing pigeons that wound up at an LA shelter and were never claimed.

Other feathery friends

We currently house and care for an aviary of around 35 birds (finches, parakeets, cockatiels, and conures) who have either recovered from previous injuries/illnesses or are special needs. The vision for our sanctuary began when our founder, very much accidentally, started rescuing and rehabilitating these little friends. Many had broken/injured legs (Astor, Boyd, Cera, Piccolo, and pretty much all of the finches), several had other injuries due to trauma (Mercy, Tim Reynolds, Jasmine), three have leg deformities (Jimi, Duckie, Jack), two are missing legs (Carter, Stefan), and one suffers from a breed-specific type of paralysis (Omar). Our little flock also includes the “Breaking Bad” budgies, who were suffering from extreme cases of scaly face and leg mites when we pulled them from an LA shelter in Sept. 2013.
