Coco the Blind Chicken Lays an Egg

8 years ago by WoodstockSanctuary

(Hit "HQ" for a bigger video) Coco arrived at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary without the ability to see, so she needs special help eating, finding water, etc. She lives in the office during bad weather and has an outdoor pen when it's nice out. She knows her way around the office very well and can even find and jump on a perch at night. Since she's a "roommate" we've learned all the sounds and behaviors before she lays an egg, and so we were able to catch it on video -- this usually involves about 20 minutes of very loud squawking and searching for the perfect spot. WFAS board member Dawn Ladd coached her along, and co-founder Doug Abel was behind the camera.
