NORWALK, Calif. (FOX NEWS) - A group of chickens fouled up part of the 605 freeway early Tuesday after a cage carrying the birds fell from a truck onto the busy road, officials said.
The California Highway Patrol said the incident happened around 6 a.m. on the 605 Freeway near the interchange with the 105 Freeway in the highway's southbound lanes.
"I-605 S/B near I-105 is a little heavy right now because of these little guys," the CHP's Santa Fe Springs Area district said on Twitter.

The driver was unaware the cage fell off the truck and did not stop, officials said.
Actual footage taken by motorcycle CHP Officer C.Lillie begs the question, “why DID the chickens cross the road?” It’s an LA area freeway, so they crossed to not become “fast” food of course! pic.twitter.com/9KTu3FEd4b— CHP Santa Fe Springs (@CHP_SFS) January 2, 2018
