Why did 1,200 chickens cross the country? To retire!
Last week, 1,200 rescued chickens were flown from California to New York by an animal rescue group that saved the hens from being killed. When chickens age beyond their prime egg-producing years, as these hens had, they are often euthanized, but thankfully for these lucky birds, they will now enjoy the rest of their days on a farm sanctuary.
