From the Sacramento Bee:

All lanes are open but traffic is still slow on Interstate 80 to the San Francisco Bay area from Sacramento more than six hours after an early morning crash involving a chicken-hauling big rig.

The Chron says there were 2,500 chickens hitting the road. A highway patrol officer told the paper, “at this point there are quite a few dead chickens.”

KCRA has the video.
