Meet Chicken-Nurse

Chicken-Nurse has incredible spirit. When people told her that chickens couldn’t go to school, she told herself, “I can do it.” When she found it hard to hold a pencil in her beak or use the computer with her wings, she said the same thing. This can-do attitude is what eventually made her the first bird to graduate from nursing school. Her classmates there took to calling her “chicken-do-it," as in, "she can do it." Her patients now say, “She sure can nurse!” That sounds a little like “chicken-nurse,” doesn’t it?

Chicken-Nurse is available for you to befriend with gifts and corresponding benefits starting at $5,000.
