Roo was abandoned in a ditch, probably because he was born with only two legs, and Penny the Silkie chicken was rescued from a testing facility when she was only a few weeks old.
They became fast friends as soon as they met. Maybe each could sense that the other had been through some tough stuff.
Now the two live with their adopted mom, Alicia Williams, who even takes the duo with her every day to the animal hospital where she works.
Roo has a specially fitted wheelchair, but Penny doesn't mind. She actually likes to roll around on the back of it. And in return, Roo doesn't judge Penny for randomly laying eggs sometimes. That's true friendship.
