Roo, the chicken on a wheelchair

The rescue chicken named Roo was frightened after seeing another rooster in the adjacent cage. So Roo got into a fight with the big rooster resulting in Roo breaking his beak in two places, bloodied comb, and swelling on his brain.

Darsy Smith told abc10.com, "Roo wasn't able to sit upright, eat, drink, or even crow until he got a special chicken wheelchair from Australia. He's able to move around in it, sit upright, and he eats a ton. He's eating a lot of food, drinking a lot of water, and it's just made all the difference."

In addition to that Roo also gets a foot massage.

Darcy Smith posted Roo's recovery on Facebook. Watch video here...
