Crying fowl: Crates of chickens fly out of tractor-trailer

NESCOPECK, Pa. -- Pennsylvania State Police are crying fowl after crates of live chickens hurtled off a tractor-trailer on a Pennsylvania highway, and the birds flew the coop. The feather-ruffling incident happened about 6:30 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 80 in Nescopeck Township. State police say about 500 chickens fell from the truck. Police and Department of Transportation workers spent about an hour gathering up the fowl, some living and some dead. Traffic wasn't affected by the search.
