Blackie stayed with her rescuers and her chicks are thriving on a large enclosed property in Hobsonville, Auckland with lots of other chickens for company.
ORIGINAL ADVERT: BLACKIE AND HER NINE CHICKS NEED A SAFE HAVEN
This dear little hen is a wonderful mother of six beautiful chicks. It is very likely that half of the chicks will be male, so I need an exceptional home where ALL of them will be able to live out their natural lifespan.
Please do not apply if the hen and her female offspring would be cared for but the young cockerels would be abandoned (illegal) or slaughtered when they reach maturity.
The successful applicant must be willing for myself or a representative to visit them from time to time. I look forward to genuine responses for these and other chick families. Thank you
