DOWNEY, Calif. —

If traffic in southern California isn’t bad enough, they didn’t need bird brains to bring cars to a standstill.

(No we’re not going with the “Why did the chicken cross the road” spiel this time.)

Police responded to the 605 Freeway around 6 a.m. local time to round up two dozen chickens before they became tenderized cutlets, KTLA reported

The question was: How did they get there?

The California Highway Patrol believes they may have fallen off a truck.

One lane of a ramp to the highway had to be closed for about an hour as CHP officers ran around collecting the birds from the fowled roadway, KTLA reported.

Several of the chickens were injured and are to be euthanized.
