Theo came to Heartland after being rescued at Pioneer Days Festival in February 2020. Pioneer Days is an annual event in northern Wisconsin, and 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. Theo survived being thrown off of a roof, and we are honored to provide sanctuary for him now. A special thank you to our friends at Farm Bird Sanctuary for caring for Theo during his quarantine period. ?
