Animal rescue finds a lonely chicken lost on the side of the road and they couldn’t leave it there to die!

Friendly Fields Farm was heading into town one morning when suddenly they saw a flash of white. They quickly made the decision to drop everything and help an animal in need. When they stopped, they realized that the white flash was a chicken!

“We weren’t planning on taking any more animals for the next few months, but when I saw this guy on the side of the road I knew we couldn’t leave him,” the rescuer said.

After assessing his surroundings, the rescuer realized that there were no houses nearby, only dangerous and busy roads. If he had left it alone, the chicken probably would have been hit by a car, so leaving it was not an option. The poor guy was so scared that he kept running when they got close. However, with a lot of patience and a few raisins to lure him closer, he was eating his sandwich from the palm of his hand. As soon as he was distracted by the food, they grabbed him and took him to safety.

“When you run an animal sanctuary and rescue, you are always available to help an animal in distress,” they said.

Chickens are domesticated animals, just like cats and dogs, and they really can’t survive on their own outdoors without help. It is also not uncommon for people to abandon birds once they realize how much work and care they require.

“I am so glad I was able to help this little guy! Unfortunately, abandoned chickens (especially roosters) are very common. Many people dump chickens alongside busy roads as soon as it becomes inconvenient to care for them.”

This chicken has joined a flock of rescued birds at the sanctuary and is already making lots of new friends!

You can follow this chicken and the other rescues on Instagram and TikTok!
