Our aviary: full of abandoned and rescued pigeons, doves, guinea fowl, a pheasant, and many of our resident chickens, needs renovations and improvements to help our birds live their lives to the absolute fullest, which is a huge part of our rescue efforts. Our goal is to turn it into an amazing natural habitat with many trees, branch overhangs, lean-to shelters, tall plants, vines, woodchip/sand floor, gardens and so much more for the birds to explore and interact with.
Our aviary houses dozens of birds of every size, shape, and breed. All which have been discarded for various reasons or rescued from the brink of death I.E egg farms, slaughterhouses, and high-kill shelters. By renovating our aviary it will bring back hope to those rescued and give our birds new life.
The plants and branch structures will not only provide a great source of vitamins and nutrients but allows for natural habits and behaviors such as foraging, exploring and mating rituals to blossom in our birds. It will also provide shelter against the strong winds and high heat and improve water drainage which is crucial for preventing bacteria caused illnesses.
Our goal is to medically/socially rehabilitate each bird and secure safe, forever homes for those adoptable so more birds may be rescued. We run the only chicken rescue in SoCal and are sadly one of the few organizations devoted to help roosters. We have successfully integrated many roosters, even ex-fighters, over time, into flocks. We believe all birds deserve to live, and that our education & outreach efforts will help others understand what loving and therapeutic companions chickens can be.
