Rick Springfield was found at the Nashville international airport, obviously waiting for a flight to The Gentle Barn. He was one of the founding animals of our Tennessee location and he opened the hearts of thousands around the world to the intelligence and affection of chickens. Rick Springfield was protective over his ladies and also allowed us to hold him. He was known for falling asleep in our arms and being gentle even to the tiniest guest. Visitors often burst into tears when they met him. He was regal, royal, strong, and brought a smile to all of our faces. Rick Springfield passed away at eight years old doing what he loved, and surrounded by the people that he loved. His transition was easy, peaceful, and beautiful. He was a star ambassador and will be deeply missed by us all and we are grateful to have had the privilege to work beside him!
