Handsome Chadwick was rescued from a cock-fighting bust in Washington state, and has the telltale signs of being used for fighting: his comb and wattles (both rich blood sources) have been cut off, which prevents them from being torn off by another rooster during a fight. After Chadwick's initial rescue, he sat in a shelter in less-than-ideal conditions for two months before being rescued by Farm Bird Sanctuary and brought to Heartland. Chadwick is a fierce protector of his sanctuary hen family (Pandora, Xena, Hershey & Daria) and we make sure to give him his space when he's focused on keeping his hen friends safe. We are so happy to welcome Chadwick to his forever home - survivors of cockfighting are some of the absolute sweetest roosters we've ever known!
