Meet Ramona the Hen: Two Bad Legs, but This Hen Won't Give Up
Meet Ramona. Ramona was a Tractor Supply chick that was born with a non-functioning leg and another leg that only semi-functions. So, she could not be sold and was going to be euthanized. But, thanks to our friend Christine Mariani Egidio, this would not be her fate. Ramona was rescued and raised by Christine until we could bring her home to live with us at Life with Pigs Farm Animal Sanctuary.
Because of her leg issues, Ramona will likely always have issues with walking and getting around. She is getting bigger and struggling to carry her weight on her legs, but we have options we are exploring to ensure that she has a long and fulfilling life here. And fortunately, her big sisters- the pigs - seem to do a good job of not stepping on her. Someday she may have to write a book called "A Chicken's Guide on How to Survive a House Full of Pigs"
