LUTHER, Okla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Meet Colorado.
Oliver and Friends took in 25 of the sick chickens, including Colorado.
"We rescued many from a terrible life, but being Cornish hens, they are all genetically modified to grow so so fast and so large that their legs cannot support them for long," Oliver and Friends writes on Facebook. "Colorado is the first of our rescues that has recently started displaying the signs that her own body is crushing itself. Her legs can no longer support her."
The sanctuary had considered euthanasia until a quick Google search found a chicken in a wheelchair.
So in an effort to help Colorado move around more easily, the sanctuary fitted her with her very own wheels!
"She’s doing great!" Jennie Hays with the sanctuary tells Fox 35. "The chair is helping her regain some strength in her legs. When we take her out of it, she can support herself unassisted for a couple of minutes."
While the sanctuary says Colorado will most likely remain in the wheelchair for the rest of her life, they remain optimistic. No matter what, though, Colorado will be living out her years with the sanctuary, wheelchair and all.
