Sonny

Sonny
Breed: Cockerel - Hybrid Age: years Sex:
Sonny came to FOAL as an unwanted school hatching project cockerel. Not only are schools hatching birds they know are unwanted, they are also lacking in knowledge regarding the care of eggs and resulting chicks. Our beloved Sonny is a prime example of this, abandoned and poorly cared for as a baby means he is incredibly knock-knee'd resulting in significant arthritis. Sonny has his condition monitored by our avian vet who also regularly reviews his pain medication, which we give him twice a day. Although this is keeping our boy happy for the time being, we know every day is precious and eventually his pain will be more than can be managed and when that time comes our vet will ensure he doesn't suffer, even though we will be distraught. If you know of a school irresponsibly hatching, please ask them to stop.

Molly

Molly
Breed: Duck - Northern Pintail Age: years Sex:
Molly came to Foal Farm in 2013 at around 1 year old, with a life expectancy of over 22 years. Our sweet little Molly is still just a youngster. Despite having a male duck of similar size, handsome Clive, Molly prefers to spend her time independently roaming, dibbling and swimming on the pond. She is also the last to go to bed EVERY night! Molly has a particularly harrowing story to tell. As a youngster she was ‘pinioned’, a barbaric act of cutting off part of a birds wing to prevent them flying. This would be similar to someone chopping off your arm! Although Molly has physically recovered from the trauma, she is a particularly nervous bird, as you would expect. If you get too close to her she may panic and because she is so unbalanced she can flip over on the spot, which can be distressing for both her and us. Molly is very loved and cherished here at Foal Farm!
