Chicken & Truck Driver Are Best Friends

(ANIMAL RESCUE/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) When truck driver Warren Padgette came across a white chicken lying in the middle of a Washington highway, the bird was in such bad shape, he thought she was dead--until she blinked at him. The chicken, who had fallen from a slaughterhouse-bound truck, was abnormally large for her young age because of all the hormones pumped into her, unable to stand, and missing most of the feathers on her stomach.

Now, whenever Warren drives past other trucks bound for slaughterhouses, he says he wishes he could save every chicken on board. -- Global Animal
