CHICAGO, IL – SEPTEMBER 30: Chickens walk around in their pen at City Farm on September 30, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. City Farm is a non-profit venture that raises produce on a one-acre tract of land on the edge of the city’s downtown in a neighborhood once dominated by the Cabrini Green housing complex. The food raised at the farm is sold to many high-end restaurants, at a nearby farmer’s market and to the public from the farm. The farm has recently been experimenting with raising chickens for their eggs. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

During the pandemic, a surprising number of Chicagoans took on chickens and roosters as companions in their backyards. Now, as life returns to normal, many have found an inability to care for these animals. Luckily, the Chicago Roo Crew is here to help abandoned birds and get them the care they need.
