Atlas

Atlas
Breed: Goose - Embden Age: years Sex:
Introducing Atlas! This magnificent goose made his presence felt immediately! He barged his way out of the transporters van and has not let anyone forget how beautiful and loud he is since! Sadly Atlas, who came to us as Lucy but quickly proved he was a boy so we chose a more fitting name for him, he actually came from a cruelty case that was successfully prosecuted meaning he was in need of a safe future and a loving forever home. Luckily for us FOAL was approached to see if we could take him and we did not hesitate! Although Lucy came with a warning that her behaviour could be challenging, what we have learnt is that Atlas likes who he likes! He is very talkative, absolutely loves to follow people, having been hand-raised, and is a charmer extraordinaire! Honestly, his naughty ways just make him more loveable, we adore his big personality! We are hoping to find a girl, or two, that needs a rescue space so he gets some appropriate company and fully accept he will be protective of her we might need shields! Wish us luck! Any help towards his care is greatly appreciated, the small animal team get very excited when one of the animals we love inspires someone to help, especially one of our very over-looked birds.

Hercules

Hercules
Breed: Cockerel - Naked Neck Age: years Sex:
Hercules was found by one of our supporters dumped in a carpark, he was in a particularly poor state with red, inflamed skin from head to claws and was clearly in a great deal of discomfort. Although Hercules is a Transylvanian Naked Neck and is supposed to have no feathers from his shoulders up, sadly for Hercules the rest of his feather loss is not normal, he should have feathers over the rest of his body but has lost them due to some previous trauma, our avian vet has confirmed they will never grow back. Although this feather loss does not seem to worry our boy too much it does make him even more susceptible to the cold weather, that means he gets to spend the winter in a cosy heated shed! When the weather is fine he has his own outdoor pen but he has proven he does not want any company, we have tried to introduce some hens to him and he did not behave very gentlemanly at all, we suspect this is due to the poor treatment he received before coming to us. It is true that Hercules does not appreciate other chickens, although we have a space reserved for his new coop in Hen Heaven so he will be able to see other chickens and hopefully one day come round to the idea of companionship we will see! Either way he is 100% a gentle giant when it comes to people! He is a very sweet and charming boy who enjoys attention and treats! Since arriving we have spent a huge amount on returning him to health, including skin sample being sent for testing, being microchipped so he could have some particularly powerful antibiotics, soothing his skin with E45 daily, the usual mite treatment and worming along with lots of special meals to make him feel better and cared for. This means not only do we all coo over every considerate sponsorship he gets, but it goes towards the cost of his previous and future vet bills too!
