Rescued Hens Up For Adoption in Marin
The farmer had placed the bands on the chickens when they were young, not thinking about how much they would grow, said Humane Society communications director Carrie Harrington. "The bands became embedded in the hens' legs."
Over the day, the Rhode Island red mix hens produced about two dozen eggs (They lay about 250 each year). None have been adopted yet, said Harrington, and the humane society has decided to drop the price from $10 to $5.
Those interested should call the MHS adoption center at (415) 506-6225.
