Two years ago, Erika Proctor and her son Finn went to a fair, where they spotted some sickly little chickens.
Proctor is founder of the Virginia-based rescue group Green Dogs Unleashed, which specializes in deaf and blind dogs. And Finn might love animals even more than she does.
Finn told Proctor he wanted to take the chickens home, even if they weren't going to survive, so they'd have known love. Three came home with them.
"Two didn't make it. Darla was a fighter," Proctor tells The Dodo.
