Lovebirds: Unlikely Romance Blossoms at Animal Sanctuary [Video]
- David Bowie the guinea fowl and Opal the hen have an adorable love story that began at The Gentle Barn, an animal rescue nonprofit.
- The couple met at the sanctuary, and David Bowie was immediately obsessed with Opal, following her around and never leaving her side.
- Opal was initially wary of David Bowie’s attention but has grown to love him, and they are now a couple, married for life, always together.
David Bowie, a handsome guinea fowl, and Opal, a lovely hen, are the newest lovebirds in town, and their story is nothing short of adorable.
This unlikely couple found love at The Gentle Barn, a non-profit animal sanctuary that rescues animals from abuse, rehabilitates them, and provides them with a safe place to live for the rest of their lives.
According to Ellie Laks, the founder of The Gentle Barn, Opal’s story is one of tragedy and triumph. She was part of a flock that was killed by a predator, leaving her alone and in need of a loving home.
Fortunately, The Gentle Barn came to her rescue, giving her a place to call home and a chance at a happy life.
David Bowie’s story, on the other hand, is shrouded in mystery. One day, he just appeared at the sanctuary, and no one knows how he got there.
But from the moment he arrived, it was clear that he had eyes only for Opal. He followed her around everywhere, never leaving her side, and even slept next to her.
Opal was a bit wary of David Bowie’s attention at first, but it didn’t take long for her to fall head over heels in love with him.
According to Laks, “Now, she rather fancies him and has accepted him as her mate. I think she likes the attention and protection now, it makes her feel special.” The two birds are now inseparable, and Laks says that they are “married for life.”
Their love story has captured the hearts of animal lovers around the world, and many are eager to show their support.
The Gentle Barn’s website provides plenty of ways to get involved and help support the organization and its mission to rescue and care for animals.
Laks hopes that David Bowie and Opal’s story will inspire others to be more accepting and loving, even towards those who are different.
“Even though we all look different, we are all really the same when we are looking through the eyes of love,” she says.
David Bowie and Opal’s love story is just one example of the many unlikely friendships and romances that have blossomed at The Gentle Barn.
The organization has a long history of bringing together animals who might never have met otherwise and creating lasting bonds between them.
So, if you’re looking for a heartwarming story that will bring a smile to your face and brighten your day, look no further than David Bowie and Opal.
