Rooster Project Update

By pattrice jones | Coordinator, VINE Sanctuary

Greetings and thank you again for supporting The Rooster Project!

I'm happy to report that our new satellite refuge for roosters has begun welcoming birds. The four roosters now in residence are doing well and getting along with each other.

As I mentioned in the previous report, this new rooster refuge is located on an island frequently visisted by tourists from spring through fall. As soon as the weather permits, we'll be installing signage so that passersby will be educated about chickens even when Aram is not around to chat with them. We're also preparing literature that people can take home to read, including a "Myths and Facts about Roosters" brochure that we will be sharing with other sanctuaries.

I'm still at work on the draft of the rooster care manual for shelters and sanctuaries. The current timeline for that part of the project is to send the draft to other experts for comment by the end of this month, edit in response to feedback, and publish in mid-March. After that, we'll begin scheduling on-site consultations with sanctuaries who request them.

As I mentioned in the previous update, our consultations with other sanctuaries about the online "rooster wiki" for sanctuaries turned up some great ideas that will make that part of the project more useful for years to come but also make the set-up much more complicated. We''ll keep you posted as we sort that out.

Meantime, THANK YOU AGAIN for supporting The Rooster Project, and don't forget to tell everyone you know that the stereotypes about roosters aren't true.
