Little Daphna, January’s gorgeous calendar girl, was rescued by a PETA staffer whose neighbors had moved away and abandoned Little Daphna and another chicken. Both were being used for their eggs. Little Daphna’s friend was mauled to death by a dog, and the PETA staffer immediately intervened to save Little Daphna from the same fate.
Now Little Daphna enjoys life on a sprawling farm, pecking around in the woods and relaxing on a large sunny patch of grass with her new boyfriend—a rescued rooster!
