All 80 of the clucking, egg-laying, injured hens that arrived Wednesday at the Marin Humane Society have been adopted. After knocking down the price-per-hen to five bucks -- chickenfeed, yes -- the hens moved in 29 hours

More birds may be up for adoption in Marin soon. Our message for the Marin Humane Society hasn't yet been returned. But you can always squawk at them at (415) 506-6225.
