Dear Friends of UPC,

On this final day of International Respect for Chicken Month of May 2018, we’re thrilled to share with you this visual story of a rooster chick who was born with multiple health problems but who, this very month, celebrated his first birthday at a party held in his honor by his friends in Florida.

Rooster Hot Thighs

Hi Karen and UPC,

I went to a birthday party this past weekend for Hot Thighs, a Rooster who just turned one. He was rescued by a girl who found him on the streets of little Havana in Florida and adopted a year ago by my friends, Janine Fuentes and Joana Griciute. Both of his feet were (and still are) deformed and he has a heart problem.

But Janine and Joana demonstrated that compassion can overcome lots of obstacles. They acquired a padded ramp to his cage which is always open - he has the run of the house! Joana, who is a vet working on her license in this country, researched the best diet and they shower him with affection. At the one year mark he couldn't be more active and robust!

We're all looking forward to Hot Thighs’ second birthday!
