My mother's dwarf chicken pets. When i was in grade school, my teacher told me a fable about chickens of the sky. In ancient times, chickens used to be denizens of the sky. And Hawks used to be a strong bird of the land. Chickens have wide strong wings while Hawks wings are narrow and weak. One day, Hawk told chicken that it wants the flight experience. So the generous chicken lent it's wings to the hawk. As soon as the hawks fly, it never came back. Chickens are left eternally with hawks weak wings, and they never could fly high. So every morning and evening every chicken would scream cock-a-doodle-doo. The scream that longs the flight on the skies. The moral of the story is you shouldn't be too generous. Because being too generous, does not equal kindness, but foolishness. Or so the folk says.
Switched gear tonight and worked on a #rooster ! I had an awesome follower of my art who bought a #chicken#painting last year and she was so awesome she gave it away to a friend! How rad is that! Well she wants a new painting that is big so I did this guy that is on an 18 by 18 inch panel. I hope it will work if not back to the drawing board!!! Be sure to stop by the @tacomafleamarket and check out all the awesome vendors this Saturday from 10 until 3!
The boys are home!! I finally got to sit down and look at posts/pic of the arrival of the ex-cock fighters. @skysthelimitsanctuary is now home to 4 of these incredible creatures. I'm so sad that I missed their arrival and I can't wait to HUG them! #hugarooster#chickensofig#chickensofinstagram#Rooster#roostersrock#roostersofinstagram#Vegan#vegans#vegansofinstagram#nonprofit#animalsanctuary#crueltyfree#Repost @skysthelimitsanctuary (@get_repost)
Join us is welcoming Ares, Hercules, Morpheus & Zeus!
These guys, along with a 5th (that we're fostering for 2 weeks), were seized from a cockfighting ring in Colorado. 48 of them were held as evidence for 80+ days in crates until the date of their execution was scheduled. Luckily for them, some wonderful people stepped up to find homes for them and rescued them from certain death. We agreed to take two, but after people backed out, leaving 14 homeless, we took in 4 instead.
What a mission! ❤️ We busted our butts for the last week preparing to take on two more than we thought we were.
Now that these guys have safe enclosures, can you consider donating to their ongoing care?

They are finally free to live out their lives without expectations. The things these boys have been through already would shock you. They've gained the independence they've deserved all along.
#Cockfighting is illegal. Please, if you see/hear something, contact your local authorities. These boys need us. ❤️🐓❤️🐓❤️
