Hershey was rescued in January of 2015. She was one of 126 chickens who had been seized from a cockfighting ring in Glenwood City, Wisconsin, and were on their way to a processing plant. We rescued the birds just in the nick of time. The chickens were raised and kept in deplorable conditions and many came to us with a variety of health problems: lice, internal parasites, severe respiratory problems, and malnourishment. Despite receiving vet care, nourishment and lots of love at Heartland, several of the survivors passed away, but many were also adopted into loving companion homes. Hershey is one of the survivors who calls HFS her forever home. Her beautiful feather pattern is known as Mille Fleur and translates into "thousand flowers".
