  • Please accept the enclosed donation to the Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund in honor of my dear rescued hen, Marissa. She came to me with a terminal case of peritonitis, from being housed in a 12” x 12’ dark and dirty coop in the back of a feed store. To my surprise and delight, the sweet chicken I didn’t think would make it through the week lived for an entire year. With loving care, her health stabilized and she thrived, becoming one of the leaders of our small flock. Marissa would be pleased to know her memorial gift is going to help other rescued chickens. I thank you on behalf of myself and Marissa for the persistent work you continue to do for our feathered friends. – Lynn Terzich
  • In honor and memory of my beloved rooster and best friend, Mr. Betty, who died on Friday night May 1st. Everyone who knows me knows how much I loved that bird. He was a loving rooster who watched over his flock with courage and bravery. Mr. Betty’s appearances in public let so many kids meet and touch a chicken for the first time outside of a KFC. I loved it when they’d say to their moms, “Mom, can we get a chicken?” Mr. Betty loved his girls, me among them, and he loved his new coop and beautiful garden. His 7th birthday would have been May 13th. A good long run for the best bird in the world. – Jude Fletcher & Dave Brandon
Mr. Betty
  • In memory of Mr. Betty, beloved rooster of Jude Fletcher. – Lois & Kim Vickye
  • In honor of Nero, Bertha, Fredericka, Julie, Nathaniel, and Leonard, remembered forever and sadly missed. – Paul Deane
  • My gift is in honor of All God’s Creatures. – Brien Comerford
