so this little babe was hatched in a commercial meat bird facility. she must have been culled cuz somehow or other, she ended up in the slaughter house. somehow she escaped slaughter but ended up in a truck bin full of dead chicken part offal. when the truck reached the rendering plant she was dumped with everything else into the rendering pit. how she wasn't crushed, how she actually survived is anyone's guess.
anyway, luckily she was found and rescued before the next load came in and now we have a new baby chicken..her name is jingles and i have to say, she is the dirtiest chick in the world. but she is alive and she seems pretty healthy so i guess she will live here at least for awhile.
being a meat bird doesn't bode well for her actually getting to live very long. she will grow too big, too fast and her heart or her legs will give out on her.
but for now she is safe and we will take good care of our new and littlest miracle babe.
welcome to saints jingles and a big high five to the folks who were all kind enough to rescue and take care of her!!!
