I cam across this story in the news paper and just had to share it.

Nation:Montana woman uses checkens for therapy.

Therapy Dogs Can be a comfort for senoris and those recovering from ilnesses and injuries.

So how about therapy Chickens?

Jana Clairmont of Polson, Mont., calls her therapy birds-a white rooster and Cornish game hen-"Fowl Play"

On Thursday, she took them to visit residents at Polson Health and Rehabilitation Center in northeast Montana.

Many seniors were raised on farms, Clairmont said, and holding a chicken can bring back memories.

As one man stroked the rooster, Alex, the bird stretched out his neck and rested it across the man's forearm, like a puppy.

What a great idea!! I know some of you have told stories about your chickens that think they are "lap birds"
Those chickens sound like they would be perfect for a job like this!!
