Dolly was rescued from an annual event that's held every winter in Wisconsin. Part of this event is a “Free Chicken Fly” which consists of throwing many chickens, one or two at a time, up in the air from a roof. Crowds scramble to grab the birds as they fall to the ground. Dolly was one of the chickens thrown from the roof at this event in 2018, and arrived with bumblefoot and severe frostbite. Thankfully, Dolly has healed and made quite the transformation since her rescue.
