Meet magnificent King Henry who was dumped along with another rooster on a property in Hobart. The people’s whose property they were dumped on were unable to keep them and relocated them to Big Ears.
King Henry lives up to his name and is a magnificent boy.
Archibald is a glamour looking rooster who loves to strut his stuff. Archi is another victim of breeding with the end result a rooster that was unwanted and unable to live in suburbia due to his noise. Luckily he was not dumped and was instead able to come and live at Big Ears which will be his forever home. Archi is a colourful character and very inquisitive. The hens all think he is showy and they make him work for their attention.
Archibald can be sponsored for $35.00 a year which will go towards his health treatments and health check.

James Bond RIP
James Bond RIP
James Bond was rescued a few years ago by a caring woman who had noticed that he and a number of other roosters had been dumped at Greens Beach. One by one the roosters disappeared and died. The kind woman decided that James would not be another victim and set about to catch him. James has lived happily at the Sanctuary ever since and even eats out of my hand.
James passed away in December 2015.
Tangerine (named because of his beautiful orange legs) was dumped on a roadside on a particularly dangerous highway. A concerned person had noticed that he and a couple of other roosters had been dumped there and that some had already not survived. This person made contact with Big Ears and it was agreed that if she could catch them then Big Ears would provide them a loving forever home. The woman was successful and caught Tangerine and his friend Mahogany (unfortunately Mahogany already had severe injuries from already being hit by a car). Tangerine, however, was lucky to have survived unscathed physically and now spends his days strutting his way around the poultry yard without any fear of fast cars and being left to fend for himself in the elements.
Sponsorship of Tangerine is $35.00 a year and will go towards his health treatments and health check.
