Recall the recent fire that killed 100,000 chickens at a Connecticut farm.
The fire occurred at Hillandale Farms, one of the top-5 egg producers in the United States.
Per the Hillandale Farms website:
Today, Hillandale Farms raises over 20 million chickens for eggs and is one of the top 5 egg producers in the country! We handle everything about their raising and care, except hatching them. We are still family-owned and operated and we still care about the safety and conditions of our birds. They get only vegetarian feed, and we’ve developed many proprietary techniques and technologies to increase their safety and comfort.
The enormous blaze reportedly led to the death of about 100,000 chickens at the Bozrah egg farm.
It’s unclear what started the fire.
Now, a similar incident has occurred at a New Zealand farm.
