Collapse Kills Hens

The collapse of a farm building due to heavy snow in Connecticut kills 85,000 egg-laying hens.

More than 85,000 egg-laying hens were killed when their chicken coop collapsed due to heavy snow. The hens belonged to Kofkoff Egg Farm, located in Bozrah, a small town southeast of Hartford, Conn. According to Department of Agriculture Commissioner Steven Reviczky, the birds were killed on January 27 and the incident was just recently reported to the state. He says that the dead birds were incinerated after the collapse. Connecticut has been experiencing ice storms and back-to-back snowstorms, bringing down the roofs of more than 130 farm buildings and killing dozens more farm animals, including dairy cows and horses.
