HARRISON is a White Leghorn rooster who was found as a tiny chick in a grocery store parking lot in Silver Spring MD. He and five other chicks were tied in a plastic bag that was inside a discarded cardboard box. A store customer who was exiting his car heard a loud cheeping coming from the box, and thankfully investigated. He found one of the chicks already dead from suffocation, and brought the rest to the sanctuary. We immediately got them food and water and set them up under a heat lamp in a large pen. They all survived, and today Harrison has grown into a handsome adult rooster.
Harrison loves to dustbathe under the trees with his girlfriend hens Iris and Clarisse. At night they sleep together in a small converted playhouse, which is just the right size for them. During the day they like to scratch and peck and hunt for food in their large yard. If he finds something good, Harrison will call his girls over and will actually offer them the treat in his beak. He is an extremely friendly rooster who loves to be held and petted, and will actually fall asleep in your lap, just like a cat.
