UPDATE: Henry has been adopted by a great home - his former family visits him weekly, bringing special food treats and lots of holding and love.

A family on the San Francisco Peninsula acquired what they believed to be female sexed chicks 3 1/2 months ago, and realized 2 weeks ago that 1 of the little girls was actually a little boy. Their 10 year old daughter, has now named him Henry and loves him the same as the day he came home with them. But they are unable to have a rooster in the area they live or the surrounding area either. They have tried posting with vets, the local feed stores and all the animal shelters they could to try to find a new home to no avail. Could you be the one who falls in love with Henry, and takes him in?
Henry has been held multiple times daily by daughter and mom since the day they got him and the other chicks. He has been fed a diet of mixed chicken feed and had daily treats of fresh leafy greens, chicken scratch, fresh corn on the cob and meal worms. They like to feed them from their hands for some of it so the chickens are used to being close to people without fear. The rest, the family spreads about the yard for them to forage for.
