Hilary, adoptable from Chicken Run

Petfinder celebrates Adopt-a-Rescued-Bird Month each January to remind adopters that there are more than cats and dogs available for adoption.

When most people think of companion birds, they think or the Parakeet, African Grey or Canary, however there are other avian options out there.

Located in the Minneapolis area, Chicken Run Rescue cares for homeless domestic fowl.

To help potential adopters, or just curious people, learn more about chickens, founder Mary Britton Clouse created ‘Things to consider before getting a chicken‘ where I learned, among other things, that chickens can live up to 14(!) years.
