Is there anyone in the northern Calif./Bay Area who has farmland and
would be able to adopt three hens from the San Francisco Animal Care
and Control shelter?
Three of the loveliest, and friendliest, hens I've ever met, are
there awaiting their fate. Here are photos of two of them, Cameron
I have had occasion to visit the shelter regularly since my darling
yearling lutino lovebird, Pasha, broke out of his well-secured cage
(alligator clips and twist-ties) last Saturday and slipped out of the
slightly open bathroom window (open for ventilation to offset the
pilot light on the heater--houses here don't, by and large, have
screens). I am heartbroken about it--and so is his buddy, Squirt.
I'll be visiting the shelter often, hoping that some kind soul finds
him and takes him there.
Anyway, the hens appear gentle and sweet, and come to the door of
their pens, with that inquiring sound they make, when I go into the
small animal room.
There are also several lovely King Pigeons--white and tame.
If anyone thinks they could take these birds, let me know. I'd be
happy to act as the SF liaison, and help in whatever way to find them
a home, including assisting with adoption fees, helping with

Humans don't eat roosters -- why? They make eggs with the hens and
wake everyone up in the morning. I tried it with the hens: it didn't
work. So I turned to crowing, and lo! I discover my gift. But no
sooner do I become indispensable than they bring in a machine to do
the job. Ohhhh-oh-oh, the treachery of it -- a mechanical rooster!
