A Melbourne woman has begun a roaring trade in wheelchairs specially made for chickens after one of her rescue chooks developed a disability.

Miranda Boulton has been busily building chicken wheelchairs since the beginning of the year.

“It’s just me in the garage and in the spare bedroom doing all the sewing,” she said.

“It’s not profitable. It’s a labour of love.”

The wheelchairs have been sold all over the world to the United States, Denmark, Germany and New Zealand.
