Jewel is a backyard  hen who was dumped at Hen Harbor last summer, along with 3 of her sisters, because they weren't laying enough eggs to please their human.

When they arrived, the hens were in dire condition. The first hen, Buttercup, died of an impacted oviduct despite extensive veterinary intervention, within 2 weeks of her arrival.

Jewel, the most outgoing of the remaining trio, showed early signs of reproductive issues, but we hoped it could be mananged without surgery. When the Deslorelin implant (which would have shut down her ovaries) went out of stock worldwide, things went downhill fast. She now has a full-blown oviduct impaction (stuck eggs) that can only be fixed with surgery.

Fortunately, Jewel's impaction is not *that* bad yet. She can go for another 4 or 5 days on antbioitcs to quell the infection and pain meds to ameliorate her pain.

Maybe you or someone you know can send Jewel an early Christmas, Thanksliving, Kwanzaa, or Hannukah gift by tossing a few dollars toward her surgery fund?  All donations are tax-deductible!

She really wants to live, and her friends Scallops (the brown hen in the video) and Jersey (the large black hen) are really counting on her joining them out in the barn again. They won't come down to the food dish without Jewel there to lead them.

p.s.

If you cannot donate, will you please share Jewel's story? It can help a lot!

p.s.s.

I accidentally created this as a "personal fundraiser" instead of an "organizational fundrasier." If you want a official tax receipt, let me know and I will mail you one OR you can just use this EIN number for tax purposes: 46-3125272.
