Rocky - Farm Animal Rescue

Rocky the rescued rooster

🐥 Rocky the rooster arrived at sanctuary on 28th May in 2016, and no doubt got his name for his toughness after sustaining a terrible injury, and somehow still surviving.
Rocky started life hatching at a backyard chicken breeder. A roosters' life is considered worthless in the egg industry as they do not produce eggs. And although many roosters in an industrial egg production facility are macerated soon after birth because of this, a common practice for backyard breeders is 'cervical dislocation'. That is, their necks are broken.
This is what happened to Rocky, after which his body was thrown into an incinerator which was to be ignited at a later time.
However, the next morning Rocky walked up to the breeder, who was so shocked he took pity on him and felt that he should be allowed to live, having survived such an ordeal. Perhaps Rocky should really have been named "Lucky"?
