Chill Chicken Shows Panicked Pooch Who's Boss

A chicken rescued by Oklahoma resident Theda Bryant has formed an unlikely friendship with a 10-year-old Pekingese named Rico.

Byrant named the chicken ‘Little Bit’ after she found it with a broken foot. She took Little Bit into her home to help her recover.

“Rico became interested in her and would bark at her. One day she just decided to go after him. Now every time we take her out to play, they go back and forth with each other,” Bryant told Storyful.

She managed to capture one such interaction on video, showing Little Bit as she lunges and chases a timid but curious Rico.

“Now every time we take her out to play, they go back and forth with each other. We really think they like playing and chasing one another,” Bryant said. Credit: Theda Bryant via Storyful
