A big rig full of 6,000 chickens crashed in Sonoma County early Thursday morning, closing Highway 121 for most of the day.
Some chickens did cross the road, but a KRON4 video shows some that looked badly shaken and hardly moving after the crash around 5:30 a.m. The highway south of Sonoma may reopen by 5 p.m., Bay City News reports.

The driver was trapped inside the truck, which turned onto its roof on the side of Highway 121 near Ramal Road. The chickens were on the way to Petaluma Poultry, which responded to corral the loose chickens.
No numbers have been released on how many chickens may have died.
