In Memoriam – Our angels that have passed on but will never be forgotten!
My name was Grampa, a Dewlap Toulouse. I was the old man of the flock. I was rescued from a park where I cut my right foot on either glass or metal and got bumblefoot. Dr. McGee treated me and I lived with a limp for 5 more years. I was hatched with a rye tail so my tail pointed to the left! I died May 30, 2013 from complications due to severe joint damage over the years and the severe pain.
My name was Daisy, a Toulouse. I was rescued from a park with Grampa. I was rescued after Grampa and was so afraid to be caught that I learned how to fly a short distance. I was so happy when I was reunited with him. I died in November of 2014 from intestinal cancer.
My name was Wilma, a Pilgrim. I was rescued as a baby from a feed store. I was very quiet and shy most of the time unless it was springtime and I had a nest! You could tell me apart from the others because of my white face. I died in Feb. of 2014 from elevated estrogen levels.
My name was Golly, a Toulouse. I was rescued from a feed store where they sold my mate to someone for food. I was one of the 1st residents of the sanctuary with Lynyrd, Skynyrd, Wilma & Donald. I died in 2010 from complications due to aspergillosis.
My name was Stefani, an Embden. I was rescued from the park with Charlie and Nicki. I died in the summer of 2011 from an ectopic egg.
My name was Ethel, a Toulouse. I was rescued from a farm with my sister Lucy. I died in 2011 when I accidently swam under the ice when it was melting and was trapped.
My name was Nicki, an Embden I was rescued from a park with Charlie and Stefani. I looked like Stefani but had a tuft of feathers that stuck up on my head! I was very shy. I died in 2014 from cancer.
My name was Lynyrd, a Chinese-African! I was rescued as a baby from a feed store. Also known as Honk because of my shrill voice. I looked like Skynyrd except bigger and I had a yellow-orange ring around my eyes. You would see me hanging out with Skynyrd and Ms. Donald. I died from chest cancer.
My name was Charlie, an Embden! I was rescued from a park with Nicki and Stefani. I was named after Charlie St. Cloud and was very shy.
My name was Willie, a Pekin. I was rescued from a park with Freckles and Blondie and loved those girls. I died March 13, 2014 from complications due to a stroke.
My name was Freckles, a Pekin. I was rescued from a park with Willie and Blondie. I had the amazing ability to catch bread thrown to me like a dog! I died in 2012 from botulism.
My name was Blondie, a Pekin. I was rescued from a park with Freckles and Willie. I was pals with Minnie since we both had bad arthritis and our legs hurt. I died November of 2014 from liver cancer.
My name was Minnie, a Pekin. I came to the sanctuary from a high school hatching project. My friends were Laurel, Hardy, Festus and Blondie. I fell in love with Buttercup when he came in January of 2013. Buttercup needed a new foot so I stood real still so my dad could take pictures of my left foot and then use computer modeling to create a prosthetic. I had very bad arthritis and my leg joints deteriorated so bad and were painful but I was happy so long as I was with Buttercup. I died September 12, 2014.
My name was Laci, a Welsh harlequin. I was brought to the sanctuary with a broken leg. I had surgery to fix the break and worked really hard at recovering for a month. In September of 2013 one of the pins started backing out and during the procedure to remove them, I did not wake up from the anesthesia.
My name was Dutch, a Muscovy! I was rescued from a place where I was being plucked for feathers. They cut my upper beak about 1/2” so I did not pull out my feathers. I couldn’t preen very well so my feathers did not stay as pretty as the others. I was full of personality! I would wag my tail and “huff, huff, huff”. I was not raised in the water and did not like to get in on my own. I would swim like a tugboat! I died from old age.
My name was Lily, a Buff! I was rescued Easter 2012 from a park and had fishing line wrapped around my leg. I had surgery to remove the line but always walked with a limp. My boyfriend was Hardy.
