Facts about Herbert

  • Breed: Chicken
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Baby
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 851298
Temperament: Herbert is a very nice rooster that is looking for a forever home. Unfortunately he came in as a stray so we don't have any background information but he did come in in rough shape. Herbert is doing much better now but really deserves a forever home where he will be well taken care of.

Diet: Feed non-medicated pelleted chicken mash and a chicken scratch as a staple. You can also do fruits and vegetables as a treat. Fresh water is a MUST as chickens do not have teeth to chew, and need water to wash down their food.

Habitat: Provide a penned area that is clean and safe from predators. provide shelter for sleeping and use hay or straw bedding. Foraging is good for your chickens in so many ways. Not only does it supply them with exercise and fresh foods, but their constant digging helps to keep their nails trimmed. When chickens forage they also tend to take more dirt baths and eat tiny rocks, which are essential to their health.

Skin/Coat: Molting occurs yearly for chickens. They will look scruffy, and you'll notice lost feathers in habitat. As feathers re-grow wings will be sensitive, so avoid too much contact during this period.

Additional Information/ Special Needs/ Miscellaneous Medication: Make sure to protect your chicken at night, there are coyotes and foxes in urban areas. We suggest finding a vet in your area for routine care.
