Atlas came to us in January of 2019. Atlas was rescued from a large factory farm bankruptcy. Atlas, along with close to 36,000 other chickens were left to starve to death as there was no money left to feed them. Luckily, activists were able to get in and save some of the chickens. Cornish Cross chickens are bred to grow very large, very quickly, but they are capable of living long, happy lives with the proper care.
