Springtime for Roosters

Greetings, and thank you again for supporting The Rooster Project!

It's not quite spring yet, in fact snow is falling as I type, but the days are getting warmer and longer, and the sap is beginning to rise in the maple trees on and around the sanctuary.

Spirits begin to rise for the birds too, especially the roos! Crowing becomes more cheerful, and every warm day is an occassion for exploration of grounds that had been covered by snow only days before.

We continue to receive multiple requests to take in roosters every week. Yesterday, we were called upon to drive over to the local humane society to pick up a rooster who someone had found wandering around their neighborhood and brought to the animal shelter in a box. Today, we heard from a woman who had taken in a rooster abandoned by a neighbor but is dealing with some aggressive behavior from him. We're going to coach her on how to respond to that behavior, in the hopes that he can stay where he is.

A key element of The Rooster Project is the support and coaching that we provide to other sanctuaries. Right now, we are in the midst of the month-long virtual conference we have organized for staff, volunteers, and board members at farmed animal sanctuaries. While roosters are not a specific focus of the conference, many of its topics are directly relevant to rooster care and the conference as a whole will strengthen the overall capacities of participaing sanctuaries. Conference attendees include representatives of 130+ sanctuaries from 19 countries and 31 US states.

None of this work would be possible without the help of supporters like you. Thank you again for being part of our extended community!
