Earl Handy of Kaneohe found what today is his pet rooster “Little Chooker” aka Fluffy along the road near Heeia State Park, a victim of an automobile.
“His right leg was paralyzed and totally limp, and he was moving his head back and forth like Stevie Wonder; obviously he had a head injury. I took him in and force-fed him with a syringe, as he wouldn’t eat. I also massaged his limp leg, and within a week he was hobbling around and eating on his own. Now he looks and acts perfectly normal, and thinks he’s a person. He has bonded to me rather than other chickens, although he does like fighting with other neighborhood roosters. He won’t eat chicken feed but rather prefers what I eat, and especially likes sweets such as granola bars and Fig Newtons.”
Last week, Chooker was attacked by a dog, but Earl says he’s doing just fine.
