Abe

Breed: Chicken
Primary Breed: Chicken
Age: Adult
Sex: Male


Once upon a time, in the lower canyon by horses, a horse caregiver noticed a lone rooster on the side of the road, with no one around and no idea where he came from. When she walked towards him, he ran into a pond! After discovering very quickly that roosters can't swim, she went in after him, pulled him out, and got him up to Wild Friends. We named him Abe, and he has been a big hit here ever since. He appears to be a young rooster, is able to be handled, and has a sweet, submissive personality. Chickens are very social and interactive, and Abe would be happiest with animal friends, whether it be other chickens, ducks, or even a friendly dog or cat (but preferably not another rooster, unless you have plenty of space). He will need protection from predators and weather extremes. Check your local ordinances to make sure you can legally have a rooster in your area. No sanctuary visit necessary, however, you must be within driving distance of Kanab to adopt. If you are interested in Abe, please fill out an application for him!
