Not every autistic will have a connection with animals.
Not every autistic will be interested in chickens.
Animals will not help all autistics over come anxiety, develop a more in-depth social understanding nor will all autistics connect with an animal that will help them connect with the community or connect with others.
BUT they may have a connection with others through other interests or common interest.
I often get asked by parents ;’My child is scared of chickens, but I want to get them pet chickens because I see how well they worked for you ‘My response is this ;’I have a fear of large grasshoppers, I mean run and hide fear
We are all different, we all have different connections.
