    There was a rescue rooster at the shelter an hour away from me. I think the people that fostered him ended up keeping him. He was gorgeous!

    I rescued my Ninja Chicken. The folks that had him were gonna snuff him. He is a small bantam rooster,but he is an attack chicken. They had cut off his spurs,and had him in a 1 foot square cage. His feathers were all messed up and he was a pretty sad looking bird. He was pretty mean in that cage,but pin me up in a 1 foot square cage and I'll get pretty mean also. I brought him home,turned him loose on my 2 acres,and he is now my favorite chicken. I don't know if he is a retired fighting bird,or someone's former pet,but when I sit out in the yard,he now comes over and sits by my chair. He still attacks sometimes,but without spurs he is pretty harmless. He is actually getting to the point where I can pet him now. He is a people friendly chicken
