    Beaky was a special needs chicken, she had a crossed beak so bad she had to eat from a bucket with deep enough feed in it, she w as a special bird loved by many who came to our farm, she would love to run up and peck at everyones toes, she greeted all as they drove up, she would fly up onto our shoulders and sit there, when ever she saw a bucket she would fly over and go right into it. She would come for rides with us, she loved to be in the vehical.
    She was our mascot, modo just becouse she had a cross beak no reason to cull her, she was and always will be an inspiration for all handicap chickens, we love you Beaky you are missed by so many.
    She passed by natueral couses, she was 2 years old.


    Here she came with us to the town common when fox 25 did a segmant on our town.

    I'm glad you gave the chance at life instead of doing away with her. I have one myself...her name is Penelope (or Penelo-peep!)
    No reason to give up on them just because of a slight imperfection.
    I don't see them doing that with people.
    ...there are plenty of people with internal imperfections if you will....and they are still out running the streets.
    Lovely girl.
    Sorry for your loss. <3<3<3<3<3<3

    So sorry you lost her.... handicapped chickens pull at my heart strings. I have a severely crooked beak Polish hen named Freaky Fredia. As handicapped as she is with her beak, she sure is a little devil when it comes to other birds... she beats them up. lol
