Therapy Chicken In A Tutu Is Teaching People To Love Animals



Meet the certified therapy chicken in a tutu named Darla.

Two years ago, Erika Proctor and her son Finn went to a fair, where they spotted some sickly little chickens. Proctor is founder of the Virginia-based rescue group Green Dogs Unleashed, which specializes in deaf and blind dogs. And Finn might love animals even more than she does.

Finn told Proctor he wanted to take the chickens home, even if they weren’t going to survive, so they’d have known love. Three came home with them.
She spends some time with her feathered friends in the chicken coop, then uses the doggie door to come inside and spend time with her favorite boy.

Darla also enjoys the company of the family cat, and the other members of the household. She even sat right beside the family’s deaf and blind Great Dane, Serendipity, when she recently died.

Finn thinks his chicken looks extra pretty all gussied up. He’s pleased — he told his mom, who tells The Dodo — that her friendly ways can help more folks see that “that chickens are people too. OK not really people, but they deserve the same respect as everyone.”
