Overweight chicken gets around with help of wheelchair

Legs can no longer support bird

LUTHER, Okla. – An overweight chicken in Oklahoma has a new way to get around, thanks to some caring rescuers.

The chicken, named Colorado, was rescued a few months ago by Friends Farm Rescue and Sanctuary from a defunct factory farm. 

The bird was so overweight that rescuers discovered Colorado's legs could no longer support her. 

To help her get around, rescuers made her a specialized wheelchair, complete with food and water bowls. 

Her new owners now have Colorado on a specialized diet to help control her weight and to help regain the strength in her legs.
