It seems this bird fell off the truck going to the slaughterhouse and landed out in front of Joe Stanley's Richmond home.
He found "Fannie Fryer" as he calls her on the double yellow line.
The chicken was unconscious, but after Joe picked her up she came alive.

Now Fanny follows her lifesaver around the yard. She's even taken to eating dog food.
Joe said she technically belongs to Tyson but is hoping he'll be able to keep her. (------------)
