- Today was a tough one. Quite a few activists and I attended Ridgeland’s hick-ass, redneck-ass annual “Chicken Fly” festival in an attempt to save some babies.
When we got there, three men were standing on the roof of a building, surrounded by tiny cages jam-packed with chickens. A giant crowd of drunk people and children were gathered around the building, waiting to catch the individuals who would ultimately be thrown off of the roof.
While we were waiting we heard people talking about how they were going to take theirs home to make soup out of them. Other people became aware that we were activists and made comments about wanting to snap their necks in front of our faces.
Once the event started, the men started chucking the chickens into the crowd. It was horrific to watch, as children fought over, clawed at, tackled, grabbed and pulled apart live chickens. A lot of the terrified chickens managed to fly out of harms way and back onto the roof, only to be knocked down with beer cans or snow balls.
I was able to catch one individual by getting her away from a little boy (I’ll go into detail about this in my post tomorrow). I left the crowd immediately after I secured her, in an attempt to reduce her stress as much as possible.
The plan was to save 7-10 chickens in total but together we managed to save almost 30. Because of this, the Sanctuary that organized this event went past capacity.... soooo I’m happy to announce I’m officially the proud new mother to two beautiful chickens!! ♡ One was the one I personally caught, and another was caught by an awesome activist I met today.
It was a really rushed & unexpected decision, so I’m a tiny bit overwhelmed but I think they will ultimately be a beautiful addition to my family. I want to say thank you so much to Quincy Markowitz for all the help with getting them acclimated and for organizing the event in general. Please follow her rescue, @farmbirdsanctuary to be updated on the condition of the other birds.
I will post photos and updates about how the two chickens I have are doing tomorrow. for now I need sleep.. I’m so drained and frankly pretty disgusted with humanity.
