    Any poultry that you have rescued. It would be nice if you could post a picture when you first got the bird(s), a little story about them, and a current picture. At least as close as possible to this. This will just be for fun.

    You may also include any harrowing experiences you have had with your own bird(s) and pictures and story and recovery.

    Charlotte was a stunted standard EE in the bantam's box, nest to an open, frigid door, covered with dried poop. We brought her home and gave her some TLC and warmth and pretty soon she perked right up! Turns out she had RSS. Now she's big and beautiful, though really stupid and lays the wrong color eggs.

    (Her chick pic is after she perked up a bit.)

    I rescued 6 mallards from my friend. She decided to get duck which in a couple months she decided they weren't fun anymore.... So she dumped them in the polluted creek in our park. When I heard this I went over to the park with a box and got into the DISCUSTING water which stunk to high heaven...and chased them around until I got all 6 of them. Here is a picture the second day they arrived at my house(the 3 on the left are my 3 that I was raising.

    Here they are about 3 months after I got them. They were let go at my creek that my cabin is on. Alot cleaner than the creek by my house. I don't have an updated picture of them but they are in their adult feathers and doing great.
