Chickens in Bay Area animal shelters looking for great homes!

Hi -
I'm a volunteer at the Oakland Animal Shelter - I work primarily with the rabbits, but also all the small animals, and with the chickens and ducks that end up at the shelter! We just had a hen/roo pair adopted, so we don't have any chickens currently available for adoption at Oakland (but we do have a duck!), but I wanted to bring your attention to some other chickens in Bay Area shelters that are looking for rescue:

ADOPTED 1-17-10: Julia is a laying Red Star at San Francisco Animal Care & Control who is looking for a new home! (http://www.sfgov.org/...­)

Petaluma Animal Shelter has a hen & a roo available. (http://www.petalumaan...­)

Marin Humane Society has a [ADOPTED 1-18-10: Hen, Speckle] & a roo, Colonel George Washington. (http://www.marinhuman...­)

Palo Alto Animal Shelter has a beautiful 9-month-old Araucana rooster named Fernando. (http://petharbor.com/...­)

Berkeley Animal Care Services has a 5-month-old rooster named Fancy Pants - no photo, but this link is updated when animals leave the shelter (http://www.petharbor....­)

Peninsula Humane Society in San Mateo often has chickens available - call 650-340-7022 to inquire about their chickens. (http://www.peninsulah...­)

Thanks for posting this Anne--seems like the hens move quickly, which is good. We can't have roosters here in SF, but some of the more outlying counties allow them.

Roosters are also illegal in Oakland, and only legal West of San Pablo in Berkeley. If anyone has chicken friends further out, please encourage them to consider adopting a rooster from one of the city shelters, as there aren't very many places for roosters to go.
