I'm sure we can all agree that chickens, in general, are therapeutic. I currently work on a therapeutic riding facility, where most of my chickens are also housed. Recently, we started seriously discussing the possibility of my chickens being used with therapy patients. My group is very friendly and cuddly - perfect for kids or adults who want to cuddle something while dealing with their emotions. I'm curious to hear if others do this as well, and am also open to advice since I'm still fairly new to chickens. My only concern would be potential contamination, meaning those who hold my chickens could potentially be bringing in sickness. Thoughts? Stories? Pictures? I'd love to see them! Pictured is my best hen, Henrietta. Thanks y'all!
