Hello chicken keepers!

We love seeing stories of chickens being rescued, adopted, loved and rehabilitated here at the Backyard Chicken Coops headquarters. And we couldn't believe our eyes when we saw this heartwarming video of a rescue rooster in a wheelchair on our Facebook feed!

Turns out, the wheelchair comes from Chicken Therapy Chairs - right here in Australia! Chicken Therapy Chairs are designed to assist recovering chickens and roosters as the get back on their feet.

Supporting rescue chooks and promoting the adoption of ex-battery hens is super important to us. You can find out more about adopting or rescuing chickens in our guide here. Or have a peck at how to care for your rescued hen right here.

After some more cheeky chook action? Of course you are! Join the flock on FacebookInstagramTwitter and Pinterest!

Feathers Forever,
