you so much for your support. Thanks to donors like you we have been able to make several improvements to Little Red Bird Animal Sanctuary that allows the birds to live happily and healthily.
We have recently added a large pond and several pools to the free ranging area so that the ducks can have regular access to water for swiming and other natural behaviors. Also in our free ranging area we have added new sand to all the pens the brids sleep in at night. This makes the area nicer for the birds as it makes it easier for volunteers to keep their areas clean for them.
The majority of the donations we recieve go to toward veterinarian care for the birds. Pictured below is Bill Nye. He is a rooster who recently had his leg amputated. He had an infection in his foot that would have spread to the bone and killed him had he not gotten surgery. Thanks to your help he is doing well now. He is recovering and gaining extra strength in his remaining leg so that he can still get around.
One comon problem we see in our hens are reproductive issues. Often times their bodies can not keep up with the insane amount of eggs they have been bred to produce and eggs end up stuck inside of their abdomens. This also takes surgery to correct. Pictured below is quinn, an amazing survivor who had pounds of broken egg taken out. She has made an incredible recovery.
Aside from veterinarian care we also have every day operating costs such as providing food. We have recently been able to switch to a much better food and can also add flaxseeds to their food which helps prevent some of the medical problems that can develop.
