I rescued this handsome boy from a vivero or live poultry market, he was destined to be slaughtered. Live poultry market cater to mostly immigrants who prefer their meat very fresh, older hens who are considered past prime laying age end up here as 'soup' chickens. I got one young rooster, and one old hen, who now lays an egg daily I should add. There's nothing like seeing a terrified mistreated bird turn into a happy member of a free range flock who loves to dust bath and chase cats, lol. This is when i got him and his 'wife' They now sleep in a dog crate in my kitchen every night (due to complaining neighbors) and join my other girls after 9am every day.
