Mica was inspired by my rescue chicken Mica.
In early March, of 2018, Mica was dumped in the cold pouring rain. She was still a chick. Mica was only a few weeks old.
Mica was attacked by a cat and was found by a homeowner. She was in his yard. The man placed her under a bush and left her out in the cold overnight. He thought she was an exotic bird and he didn’t know what to do.
He posted about her the next day.
I immediately called him when I saw his post. I had to convince him that Mica was a chicken, not an exotic bird.
After a lot of encouragement (he was scared to touch her), and guidance, he put her in a warm box and took her inside his house. A rescue near him sent a transporter to pick her up and she arrived at Carolina Waterfowl Rescue. Her wound was treated, she received the medications that she needed and then she made her way to my microsanctuary.
I spent a lot of time on the phone with the man who found her. He was so surprised that Mica was a chicken. He told me that after this experience, and getting to know Mica, that he didn’t think he could ever eat chicken again.
Mica finding her way into his yard, changed his perception about who chickens are. Mica taught him that chickens are someone and not something.
I will always be grateful to him for helping to save Mica’s life.
Mother Clucker’s Microsanctuary is located right outside of Asheville in Leicester, NC. They are a vegan microsanctuary that provides a loving and safe home for rescued chickens.
