If you have traveled to Key West, Florida, you have undoubtedly seen the area’s iconic “gypsy chickens” which roam freely through the area. With Hurricane Irma destined to slam into Key West in less than 24 hours, what has happened to these birds?
At least some of them have been whisked away to safety. On September 6, the Facebook page for Key West Finest posted a photo of bundled chickens which were evacuated.
Gotta love the people in Key West! Thank you to Local Selfie Celeb @Jayesh Mani for doing what the rest of us only wished for! 💙🌴
To those worried about the manner in which the birds are wrapped up, no worries. One person, a chicken owner herself, commented on the post and assured concerned animal lovers that this is a safe and effective way to transport the birds.
