Happy adoption update! . Lucy was once someone’s backyard hen, abandoned when she began to age and laying fewer and fewer eggs. Languishing at the shelter, her future seemed grim, until she caught the eye of Kari and Anton, two compassionate individuals who live in the San Bernardino mountains. Before Lucy, Kari and Anton first found themselves becoming chicken parents when a neighbor decided to get rid of their flock. Despite never having owned chickens before, they created a safe environment and took the neighbor’s unwanted chickens in. . From Kari: . “Lucy is doing wonderfully. She is such a sweetheart, I cannot imagine why anyone would give her up. She trusts me already, and if I sit outside in the evening, one of her last activities before she enters the coop for the night is to perch beside me for a little bit. She enjoys talking with me. She has integrated very well with her hen family, and they go from place to place together, scratching through the fallen leaves of fall for the sunflower seeds we hide in them to -- her favorite activity -- dust bathing by the back gate.” . When asked why she chose adoption/rescue, she said: . “Chickens are such a joy to watch as they go on about their lives. It's really better than meditation to watch them scratch around in leaves, to call to each other excitedly when they find some tasty morsel of food, or to spend an hour dust bathing.” . As the saying goes, saving a bird may not change the world, but it will change the world for the bird. . Will you be a hero, and change someone's life today?
