Phil & Giles are Looking for a Loving Home

Location: Burns Beach

Phil and Giles are a pair lovely little Barnevelder cross feather-footed bantam roosters. They were hand reared along with three other chicks believed to be females, but all four grew up to be beautiful roosters. Their friends Ivan and Winston were lucky enough to find new homes, but these two boys are still looking.

As their current carers live in suburbia, they are not permitted to keep roosters at their residence. Despite trying different methods to reduce the noise of their crows, they are worried that the boys will be discovered, and the council will take him away. They are very fond of this little guys, and would love to keep them as pets but their proximity to the neighbours means this isn’t an option, therefore they are eager to find their boys a loving home.

Of the original four roosters, Phil and Giles were at the bottom of the pecking order. Both are very sweet little cockerels, and Giles is particularly shy; they make wonderful pets. Not to mention they are stunning birds, boasting beautiful colours and patterns, and forage around on those adorable feathered feet!

The West Busselton Five

Falcon, Sherbet, Popcorn, Pepper & Rocket (roosters) Arrived 8th August 2017

Sherbet, Falcon, Popcorn, Pepper and Rocket were the result of backyard hatching. Their owner’s already had a flock of chicken, one being a particularly broody hen. Their children asked if they could obtain some eggs to raise under her. Though they didn’t consider how they would accommodate them, should some be born male. This is something she now feels very sorry about, and hopes others learn from her experience.

The mother of the house embarked on a mission to find these boys a caring home. She emailed every vet and sanctuary within a 200km radius, and advertised them publicly, though this proved to be unsuccessful, and only attracted people with unsavoury plans for the roosters. Finally there was a light at the end of the tunnel, as she had discovered a place that called itself a rooster rescue. She had three in-depth conversations with the owner before deciding that this would be the rooster’s new home.

After a 300km drive with 5 roosters and 2 children in the car, she arrived at the so-called rooster rescue. But when she arrived, she realised she had been deceived. They had arrived at what she called a very inhumane place, a scene of many caged and neglected birds – It was clearly not a loving home for roosters, or any animal for that matter.

She and the kids sat in the driveway of this place in tears, as the property owner hassled her about leaving the roosters with him. She knew she could not leave her boys at such a horrible place. She rang us while she was in his driveway, very distraught and explained the whole story. Luckily we were able to make some room for them, and she continued to drive for another hour up to the sanctuary.

The boys settled in nicely, but unfortunately a couple of weeks after their arrival little Falcon became flat one evening. We had arranged to get him to the vet the next morning and in the meantime we kept in inside and tended to him, but sadly he didn’t make it through the night.

The four remaining roosters are doing really well, and are enjoying life here at Happy Hooves.

The Fantastic Four

Mikey, Roy, Rusty and Valentino (roosters) Arrived 15 May 2016

These four handsome hunks came to us via a friend whose neighbour bought young (what she thought were) hens from a heritage breeder. When it turned out that four of them were in fact roosters, she was going to return them to the trader, but was told they would likely be put down. So here they are with us, taking our total to seven roosters. They alternate with the hens to free-range so that there’s no hanky panky, and it’s a beautiful sight to see fully grown roosters out in the sun and the pastures, scratching around, foraging and dust-bathing.

Welcome to heaven boys!
