Chickens, Geese and Turkeys

Greta Goose

Goose is a lovable little goose! In Spring 2016, Goose was brought to BMASER by a caring neighbor who saw Goose wandering around a local park. We soon discovered that Goose was purchased as an Easter chick and later abandoned by the owners. Since Goose was raised by humans, his chance of survival in nature was very slim. Goose has acclimated to Burleigh life just fine!Goose is best friends with our female turkey, Maurice. You can catch then laying in the baby pool on most summer days.

Goose adores affection and treats!

Bucky

Bucky is a female Guinea hen. She lives with other Guinea fowl, chickens, turkeys and a goose. She can often be heard “sounding off” as Guinea hens are the protectors of the coop.

Henrietta

Henrietta is a Guinea hen like her best friend Bucky. These two girls just love our turkeys Barry and Robin. They spend a large part of their day hanging out with the turkeys and a considerable amount of that time grooming them.

Jane

Jane is our beautiful ‘Blonde.’ She is super smart and quick and beautiful to look at. She spends her day hanging out with her BFF Susie.

Annie

Annie was brought to Burleigh Manor by a concerned family who found her wandering around alone. She had been kicked out of her flock by an owner who was angry that she was pecking and eating some of the eggs in the coop. After this ordeal, she was very afraid and skidish. She has calmed down quite a bit now that she is part of her new flock. She has especially bonded with our large rooster, Darkie, who protects her like a hawk. Annie has white earlobes, bright yellow legs,and a perfect single comb.

Haley

Haley is a Buff Orpington hen who was left in a clothing donation bin in Baltimore, MD. She was brought to the BARCS animal shelter, and from there she was placed in our care. Upon arrival, she appeared to be very young in age, yet her nails were long and curled under and her back so long she could not eat. She was profoundly malnourished. She is a sweet girl who loves to be held. She is still learning how to socially integrate with the other chickens.

Cali

Cali is a Speckled Sussex hen otherwise known as a “Spotty Chick.” She is funny, filled with personality and is all about adventure. She is the first chicken to leave the coop each day and the last one to return. She has an impressive vertical jump when it comes to getting her cheerios!

He is very docile and sweet and loves to be stroked. He likes to display his beautiful plumage and also likes when people pay attention to his feathered displays.
