From Highway Horror to Hen Haven

When 65 chickens fell off a slaughterbound truck on a busy highway in Virginia Beach on the morning of July 26, United Poultry Concerns promptly adopted 20 survivors and placed 20 other birds with UPC members Kay Evans and Jim Robertson in North Carolina. Sadly, 25 birds died at the scene, but 40 hens are alive, happy, and thriving in their new homes.
