Sponsoring an animal at The Gentle Barn enables us to continue saving and caring for some of the most vulnerable and neglected animals.Click Here To Learn More About Animal Sponsorship
Tulip was rescued in 2009 when her mom came out from under a bush with fifteen babies. We do not know who she belonged to, but we did know that if she staid under that bush they would all be eaten. So we carefully picked them all up and brought them to live with us, as part of our family. Tulip grew up in our barnyard and has always been sweet, kind, and gentle. Her mom and siblings have all passed away of old age over the years, and Tulip is the last one left. I guess she loves it here with us and we don't want to see her go either. Tulip has not been genetically modified for the egg industry or the meat industry, and is what the original, unmodified chicken is supposed to look like: small, only lays several eggs a year, and will hopefully live a long time.
