Fire kills 500,000 hens

 ROGGEN,  Colorado–An April 30,  2012 fire at the Boulder
Valley Poultry egg farm razed three of the 10 barns at the facility,
killing nearly half a million of the one million resident hens.  Fire
crews from Wiggins,  Hudson,  and Fort Lupton fought the blaze,
which attracted a large crowd,  including an  unidentified lone
demonstrator who stood with a sign reading “Save the Chickens,”
reported Sharon Dunn of the Greeley Tribune.
