Erin Bankston, a mother of three from Fort Worth, Texas, who currently lives in Acworth, Georgia, reportedly spent a day setting up the altar and could have even dressed the two chickens for a wedding ceremony .
The latter, 40, who organized the ceremony for the two chickens, Mr. and Mrs. Mayflower, to show how inseparable they are, also used his new notoriety to raise public awareness about the humane treatment of animals and hopes to make think of people when they see an animal in trouble.
Sharing the photos of the ceremony on Facebook, she wrote:
“Our first (and only) wedding in the new barn! The wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Mayflower!
The story of these two lovebirds:
In May 2017, I received a call from a friend who had just found an abandoned rooster next to a henhouse after all his friends had been driven to the slaughterhouse. He had a broken leg, could not walk and was aggressive like a snake. When he arrived at the farm, we treated him like all our other chickens and made sure he was exercising a lot. I limited her diet (because of her race) and I treated her. We spent a lot of time together, and one way or another, this aggressive cock became the sweetest and kindest of the farm …
Two months ago, I received another call from a girl who had literally picked up a chicken on the side of the road just after she fell off a truck. She knew that this chicken needed a farm where she would be loved and cared for, and I was happy to welcome her. At first, I was going to put it with the little chickens, but over time, I noticed that she was more interested in Mr. Mayflower and the feeling was vice versa.
So we started with small farm visits and soon realized that all they needed was one another.
Subsequently we decided to organize a large marriage of chickens for these two lovebirds who are really lucky to be alive and in love with each other.
Thanks to my friends Leslie Wells and Sandra Bianco for helping me to unite them. “
