You’ll be hearing more about this amazing flight of 1,150 hens from California to New York. Meanwhile, The Guardian published a lovely article
yesterday about the rescue of these hens by Animal Place from a battery-cage operation in California.
1,150 chickens will fly the coop to New York thanks to anonymous benefactor.

Thank you for your wonderful article about the flight of the hens from California to the East Coast this month! My organization United Poultry Concerns, in
Virginia, is adopting 50 of these precious birds. They will live in our sanctuary, sit under the trees, run around our grassy yard, sunbathe, dust bathe,
and perch peacefully every night for the rest of their lives with our other hens and roosters, experiencing a semblance of the happiness chickens are
supposed to enjoy in the world of beauty to which they contribute when they are not living in filthy, cruel cages that only a demon could dream up. Hens
have the loveliest way of tripping through the grass when they're eager about a discovery.
