Big Mama was adopted by Stephanie and Gregory Sword and their two sons, who live in College Station, Texas.
She immediately became a member of the family and even earned a place in last year's family Christmas photo.

"Big Mama was very close to being euthanized, but through the kindness of friends and vet techs and veterinarians that saved her, she made her way to us and had this beautiful life as part of our family," Sword told The Eagle. "We really felt if any chicken deserves an obituary, it was Big Mama."
