Adopt a chicken: Yes, Mom, a new pet idea straight off the rescue jet from California. 1,000-plus white leghorn chickens rescued from gassing at a California battery cage egg farm are now in New York waiting for their forever families to adopt them through Animal Place, a sanctuary for rescued farm animals.

My nine-year-old is going to read this story and make us watch the movie "Chicken Run" for the next three days. On the bright side, then next time a child asks if chickens can fly I know that the new answer is “Yes, but only on a private jet when being rescued by Animal Place farm animal sanctuary, of northern California” Today that group flew 1,150 hens to New York in style from the California Bay Area.
According to a press release by Animal Place, the hens were part of a group of 3,000 rescued by Animal Place.
