I Brake for Crippled Chickens

If you'll be driving on Forest Ave. in Portland on Thursday between 2 and 3, watch out for hobbling poultry in front of Kentucky Fried Chicken. It's part of a PETA protest:
A giant crippled "chicken" will repeatedly cross the road in front of a local KFC to lead a protest against the company's abusive treatment of chickens. Other PETA members will distribute leaflets to passersby, and one activist will wear a body screen TV showing shocking video footage of factory-farming abuse. [Source]
Isn't "crippled" a non-PC word? I think they should call it a "differently-abled" chicken.
