Shelley was living in a backyard with other chickens when the owners of the house left the property and abandoned the chickens. Predators and cold weather claimed the lives of all of Shelley’s friends, and she was in danger of succumbing to the same fate. A Refuge supporter traveled through snowy weather to bring Shelley to safety. Shelley is one of the friendliest and most outgoing birds who lives at the Refuge. She often will follow you around hoping for affection or a treat.
