Only people who don't want to eat the hens are eligible to adopt them.

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fort Worth animal control is trying to find a home for 20 chickens; the only survivors out of about 250, scattered in crates across I-35W last week.

There wasn’t a vehicle in sight when police arrived on-scene, thus they weren’t able to determine who the chickens belong to.

A spokesperson for the city says the chickens — all hens, no roosters — are easily handled as pets.

So far, they haven’t had any luck placing the hens with any area rescue groups.

Animal control workers are currently building a chicken coop on the grounds of the shelter to house them.

The only stipulation for adopting the chickens, is that someone isn’t interested because they want to eat them.
