Casper was very fortunate to have been accepted into a wonderful all-rooster sanctuary before it became too full for further adoptions. He has chosen not to hang out with the 30-odd other gorgeous boys, but has made a private home for himself in a nearby bush area where he is fed each day. Sometimes he ventures nearer the bachelor flock and, in time, he may choose to keep company with them.
Meanwhile he graces the natural environment with his beauty and his crystal morning crows.
NOTE: If you live in a rural area and are able to offer a sanctuary to one or 100 roosters, please contact me so we may discuss the possibility. Thank you.
ORIGINAL ADVERT: CASPER NEEDS A REFUGE
Young Casper was abandoned in an urban park where he was at risk of dog attacks, traffic, taunting and poaching. He is a magnificent rooster with his pure white plumage, his bright red wattle, comb and eye detail - and his considerable crow.
If you have a pampered flock of hens in need of a boy to keep them happy and to offer them a sense of protection, please apply for his adoption. You will need a stringent egg collecting plan in place to stop breeding as 50% of clutches are male chicks.
Alternatively, Casper could live free-ranging on a rural property with a natural water source where he would sleep in the trees at night and have grain and kitchen scraps thrown to him a few times a week. He would look wonderful pecking around a barn, on a hay bale or fencing post. He would need a home safe from roaming dogs and, if hawks are common, there would need to be tree shelter where he could run to safety.
Casper may be adopted with or without his female housemates Sunshine and Shadow.
We have treated Casper (and his girlfriends) for mites, lice and worms and he is in excellent health.
I very much look forward to your application for this gorgeous looking boy. Thank you.
NOTE: If you witness anyone dumping chickens in public places, please note the time & date and write down their car number plate & description. If possible, also take a photograph of the offender(s) and forward all details to the Auckland SPCA so that a prosecution follows. Please inform others that abandoning an animal is cruel and is illegal under the Animal Welfare Act. Offenders can be fined up to $50,000.00, face a 12 month prison term - or both.
