When we built Unity Farm in 2012, we started with a dozen hens. Now we have 100 Hens and 25 Roosters. The ideal ratio is about 5 hens to one rooster but many local towns do not allow roosters, so Easter chicks often result in Sanctuary rescues.
Our turkeys have a lot more to say than just "gobble-gobble"! We have Royal Palms, Narragansetts, Blue Slates, and Broad Breasted Whites. Each is safe and sound at Unity and has their own personality and unique style--just ask Palmer or Handsome Paul!
