Like Helga and Flower, Lucky was also rescued by a courageous volunteer from a local slaughterhouse. Lucky has a distinct feature among the roosters here at Saving Grace - his upper beak has been trimmed. This painful procedure was done to keep him from pecking the other chickens he was confined with at the slaughterhouse. Its just one of the many cruel things that the agricultural industry does to animals in the name of convenience.
With those dark days behind him, Lucky prefers to spend his days hanging out with his goat pals. You can often find him lounging with Winston or challenging Niblet to a headbutting contest (Niblet always lets him win).
Helga and Flower
Don't be fooled by the names, Helga and Flower are two of the three male roosters here at the sanctuary. Rescued by a group of local volunteers, Helga and Flower were taken from a slaughterhouse with just minutes to spare. After a brief stint in fabulous Hollywood apartment, they made it to the sanctuary just in time for Thanksgiving in 2017.
Despite being caged in a slaughterhouse for much of their young lives, Helga and Flower are two of the most lovable, social roosters you'll ever meet. When you come to the sanctuary, don't pass up the opportunity to get a lap dance - sit with them in their pen and they'll climb right up on your lap for some attention!
