Zippy

Zippy was surrendered to Lefty’s Place in mid 2016. She was surrendered with her friend Miss Mccraw from a lovely lady who was going overseas for a trip and had no one to care for her girls. They came to us without names and with a bag of chicken food. They both fitted in so well and love running around the property.  Zippy is small and fast, thus her name. She lives in Popeye’s flock and and enjoys silverbeet and corn the most. She believes in running fast and sitting up high on perches. She zips here, there and everywhere.

Skipper

Skipper.

She is a little pocket rocket hen who loves life! She was found wandering around the streets of St Albans last year and taken in to my vet surgery. When her home couldn’t be found. I very happily went to pick her up. She now lives in the country, surrounded by mountains and space at Lefty’s Place. She’s as cheeky as she looks, but she’s a loner. She has no real friends, but tolerates others.

Little Boo And Prudence From Bed And Broccoli

Bed and Broccoli is a bed and breakfast, but it is also a wildlife shelter set on a majestic 60 acres of Australian bushland with it’s own thriving mob of kangaroos living free within it. Nikki and Scott Medwell took in two orphaned joeys early in 2016 and I have had the joy of documenting them grow up along the way. It’s been a pleasure watching them and learning about kangaroos in the process. My favourite part though has been watching the bond between Nikki and the two little kangaroos who she has brought up with such love and determination.

They are such gentle creatures who just want to live in peace with their beloved families.

Please enjoy the slideshow below of these two beautiful joeys.

Red Robin

 

Red Robin was rescued from the abattoir in October, 2016. She was completely emaciated, featherless and terrified.  She and her thousands of shed mates had been crammed in to the transport crates so tightly that there were dead hens everywhere.

She came to Lefty’s with two of her featherless friends from the same crate, Thumbelina and Cruskit.

The three of them huddled in a corner of the coop for a week until Red Robin found her wings and fly up to the perches. She then stayed up there for another week whilst she figured out her new home.

These days Red is a confident, fully feathered hen who is not afraid to go anywhere. She now has the world at her feet with her freedom in her hands and she is happy being able to do everything chickens dream to do when they are stuck in egg farms.

She still doesn’t like humans very much, but I really don’t blame her after the life she has been through.

Babette, Miss Patty and Mrs Kim

These three lovely Muscoy ducks were rescued from a disgusting backyard breeder in October, 2016. These three girls were so bonded from the start that none could be left behind. All three are the best of friends. They chat together all day long. Miss Patty is a chronic brooder and Babette is completely in love with Templeton. Mrs Kim prefers her independence and would rather Templeton leave her alone thanks very much.

They enjoy their days splashing around at Lefty’s Place and they take such comfort and safety in the friendship and love they feel for each other.
