Baby Chicken Finally Nods Off After Surviving Horrible Highway Accident

When a young baby chicken fell off a livestock truck on her way to New York, she fell out of the frying pan and into the fire. Once destined for a slaughterhouse, she was now left to die by the side of the highway.

But luckily, things took a welcome turn for her and dozens of other chickens who fell off the truck. Officers from NYC Animal Care & Control rescued them from the Staten Island Expressway and quickly brought them to the New York Shelter of the organization Farm Sanctuary.

According to staff, when this chicken in particular arrived, she was traumatized and unable to sleep. Now, the bird, named Jane, is so relaxed that she can fit in a snooze anytime. And in case you were unaware, the sound of a chicken snoring — snuckling? — is real and absolutely perfect:



It’s important to note that tens of thousands of animals are killed or injured in U.S. highway accidents each year while being transported by the meat industry. At the same time, some 9 billion chickens are slaughtered each year in the U.S. for food.
