Audrey ran the Good Sprout Rescue organization for needy animals & birds. She recently received a message about a rooster in a cardboard box. Roosters never laid eggs, so people didn’t want them. So, Audrey took the poor bird home with her. She named him Bradley.
Bradley was very thin when he arrived at the sanctuary. His comb was very pale, and she could tell that the little one was struggling to survive. The rooster immediately slept on Audrey’s lap.
He felt safe around her and was totally comfortable with her. However, living inside your home with a rooster was not easy. Bradley would crow every hour during the night. Audrey really enjoyed it, though.
Bradley was a very cuddly bird. He would lay down with her and fall asleep. He loved his wattle massages and enjoyed it when Audrey ran her fingers through his feathers. Sometimes Bradley would purr when he liked it.
His favorite place in the house was the bathroom. He liked being up high on the shower curtain rod and looking at the bathroom mirror to see his beautiful reflection on it.
Audrey knew that it was not ideal to have a rooster living inside her house. Especially one who would crow at his owner every hour of the night. However, the kind woman believed she received more love from her pet rooster than she gave him.
To find the rooster to grow healthy was an indescribable gift for Audrey. Looking at him flourish and thrive made the owner feel better every day. She was delighted when Bradley graduated from her living room to living with the sanctuary animals. Bradley now lived with his flock and several other animals & birds.
