We've seen people painted in orange and blue, children transformed into barrels and pets sporting their orange jerseys to show their support for the Denver Broncos as they take on the Pittsburg Steelers this Sunday.

Today, we found out some chickens are also showing off a bit of Broncos Pride as well -- and it's all for a good cause. 

Students at Pioneer Elementary School in Parker turned their chicken coop into a mini Broncos stadium -- and dressed the chickens with orange and blue bandanas as they watched them play. 

"It was just kinda [sic] an experience for the kids to learn how to take care of animals, and we have a group of kids who come in everyday and take care of the chickens. It's been awesome," said Susan Irwin, a librarian at Pioneer Elementary School. 

Students have been raising the chickens for several months. The chickens also normally live outside in their coops when they're not on the field.
