Ivan is Looking for his Forever Home

Location: Perth

Ivan is a lovely little Barnevelder cross feather-footed bantam. He was hand reared along with three other chicks – Ivan is the only male in the little brood.
As his current carers live in suburbia, they are not permitted to keep roosters at their residence. Despite trying different methods to reduce his crows, they are worried that he will be discovered, and authorities will take him away. They are very fond of this little guy and are eager to find him a loving home.

Ivan will be wormed and vaccinated before handover to his new family, and an adoption fee of $20 applies.

Roger

Roger (rooster) Arrived 1st September 2017

In late August little Roger the rooster turned up on someone’s porch, that someone happened to be afraid of roosters. He loitered on their front porch, peaking in the door. Happy Hooves were contacted about the rogue rooster, and his reign of terror came to an end. He was picked up and transported to the sanctuary where he joined his new best friend, Rusty. The pair are getting along wonderfully and are enjoying sanctuary life.

 

Would you like to help us to take care of Roger?  One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.

Benji

Benji (rooster) Arrived 25 March 2017

Benji’s story is one we have heard time and time again. His previous owner purchased some 7-week old Bantam chickens, sexed as females. As the hens began to mature, it became evident that Benji was in fact a male – A beautiful little Belgian Bantam rooster. As his owner’s resided in suburbia, they were unable to keep Benji and contacted us for assistance.

We weren’t sure how Benji and our resident bantam King Louis would react to each other. After a short time in quarantine, Benji was introduced to Louis and his harem of regular-sized hens. Much to our delight, the two get along wonderfully! Benji, Louis and the hens Wilma, Sweet Pea, Princess Layer, Lindsay Lohen and Yuki all share a coop at night. When we go to shut their door in the evening, they are all on the perch cuddled up together. Benji has found his forever home here at Happy Hooves.

Chooky the Rooster needs a super URGENT home!

Chooky found his own home about 12 months ago when he wandered onto a hills property and claimed a tree for a bed. He crept his way into the homeowners heart and she created a lovely box up in the tree for him so he would be safe from the elements. Unfortunately, she lives in a shire that does not allow roosters and despite the fact that Chooky is very happy in his current home, she must move him on. Here’s a little story about him from Gill…

Chooky is a tame rooster with heaps of personality. To get to his bed, he jumps on a rubbish bin then jumps into his bed. He does prefer to climb onto your hand and get lifted to his bed, from the bin, and then have his wattles and cheeks rubbed while he enjoys a bedtime snack of grapes, biscuit crumbs and wheat. He is very funny. I then have to pull up Black plastic across the opening to keep it dark but have been doing that late at night because it is too hot to do that in summer. Before bedtime he likes to hang out with us. His best friends are 3 visiting kangaroos. He hangs out with them all day and eats from the same bowl, especially with the mother and her new joey. He thinks he’s a kangaroo and protects their food from the crows and magpies. He doesn’t attack the birds, just boldly walks up and they move on.”

This gorgeous fellow must go to a really good home, but very quickly, as the Shire is putting pressure on her to get rid of him ASAP.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME: Chooky

AGE: 18 months

BREED: Orpington cross (possibly)

WORMED: No (will be done before handover to new home)

PARASITE PREVENTION: Will be treated with flea and mite spray before handover.

TEMPERAMENT: Friendly, loves a scratch and to hang out with kangaroos. Not too fond of crows though.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  Chooky would do best in a free range environment but would need secure housing for night time to prevent predator attack. Roosters are restricted to councils that allow the keeping of them due to the noise they create with their adorable crows. Please be sure to check with your local council before you offer to adopt. Please note that this rooster is NOT offered for breeding or eating.

ADOPTION FEE: $20

FRED(Australorp rooster)
WILMA (Australorp hen)
BLACK BETTY (Australorp hen)
DINO (Araurcana rooster)

Arrived 21 November 2015

These four were rescued from a property where they had been left to fend for themselves after foreclosure. We don’t know their history, but we do know their future looks a lot brighter!

UPDATE: We were very sad to say goodbye to Black Betty yesterday (20 July 2016). Despite immediate veterinary attention, a course of antibiotics for bacterial crop infection, a course of anti-inflammatories and a follow up visit, she succumbed to what the vet believed was a gastrointestinal tumour, with the crop infection secondary.

Batman & Robin… looking for a new Batcave!

These stunning boys are looking for somewhere super cool to hang out, maybe it could be with you? They are a gorgeous pair of bantam roosters who are delightful and charming in character, and simply stunning to look at! Here’s the story from Allira…

It is with a heavy heart that I contact you… I have two beautiful roosters, Batman and Robin whom I am looking for a loving home with lots of space to enjoy. I raised them from chicks and would love to keep them forever however I live in the Fremantle council area and we aren’t allowed roosters here. I have considered using no crow collars, covering their coup & other things to keep them from crowing for the neighbours and so I can keep them, but I think it would be kinder for them to go to a home where they are free to do what they do best. I think Robin is a Bantam and Batman is a Silkie. They get on really well, are about four months old and are also used to sharing our backyard with dogs and cats.”

We are looking for a home that can take them both on, as they are the best of friends.

REHOMED – On Trial – 3 Ducks and a Rooster

Introducing Saturnin, Jupiter, Pluto & Aglae… searching for a very special home together – located in Perth Western Australia. This is their message:

We are 3 Welsh Harlequin ducks and 1 Goldlaced Wyandotte rooster. We ducks are known as Saturnin, Jupiter and Pluto (the only girl), and Aglae is the rooster. A caring lady rescued us from a sad future when we were 4 weeks old. Us ducks each have vision in one eye only, but it is enough, plus Aglae is our seeing-eye rooster and watches over us. Aglae was lame in one leg but he healed this himself in the first 2 weeks at home with lots of stretching exercises, and he is now a large and well behaved rooster. We all went to see the bird vet, and us ducks have been on a 10-day antibiotic course of eyedrops.

Like all ducks, we totally love our little shell pools and green feed (lettuce leaves). Aglae has grown up with us, and is really more duck than chook, he loves his green feed too, he does draw the line at swimming though. Aglae has not been crowing, he only raises the alarm when his duck friends are threatened and he can’t handle the situation on his own (eg a cat attack).  He might still start crowing at week 20, but I would not be surprised if he does not, as he is a very quiet bird who just goes about his business quietly, and patiently waits every morning to be let out of his night-box into the day-yard. As mum has to go away for work for 6 months, we are now looking for a new mum (or dad, or both) either as a foster home till mum comes home again, or as an adopt home. Pluto would love to have another girl duck in the mix, for gender balance and also because she is a little bit an “outsider” having joined our group of three 4 weeks later.

If you feel you can be the new carer for our fun family of four, please fill out the application form below and our rescuer will be in touch by phone or by email.
