With all the danger that could be lurking outside in the field at night including predators who would be more than happy to gobble up Poodle Roo, why was he doing it? His owners were baffled…
Poode Roo’s quirky routine was such a mystery, documentary filmmaker John Chester paid a visit to Apricot Lanes Farms to help figure out the answer. The farmers hired Chester because they just needed to get to the bottom of it and help Poodle Roo get a much-needed full night of rest in the safe, and secure chicken coop.
On the first night when Chester came to the farm, Poodle Roo refused to enter the coop as normal. But what happened next left everyone in tears…
As the confident protectors of the flock, roosters need to be brave and brawny. But every time Poodle Roo refused to return to the coop at night, he risked his own life. He couldn’t beat a fox or raccoon in a fight.
Poodle Roo’s owners carried him into the coop to give him one last chance. But in the morning, they couldn’t believe what they saw.
Poodle Roo’s future looked grim. But as it turned out this brave little rooster had so much more fight in him than anyone ever gave him credit for.
The rooster had been beaten and bloodied to a pulp by the other roosters in the coop. None of the other roosters had accepted him into their flock. He was hanging on by a thread.
Chester compiled his shocking footage into a short film that was later picked up by Oprah’s show Super Soul Sunday. That’s where he earned his new nickname, Rising Strong Rooster.
Because the humans had forced the rooster to enter the coop where the bullies lived, he had almost no chance of surviving. All they could do now was pray that their decision to throw him to the wolves wouldn’t kill him. They helped keep him warm so he could recover.
After the attack, the farmers discovered the Poodle Roo had gone partially blind and deaf.
But life for Poodle Roo was about to change once again.
Watch Poodle Roo’s meteoric rise to becoming a better rooster. Despite his setbacks and disabilities, he finds new purpose helping other chickens…wow!
