Sunday, 4 October, 2020: It was around three in the morning when 42 chickens from a farm in Ipswich, whose name will not be mentioned out of courtesy, escaped into the night. A bus driver, who has asked that their name be withheld from the general public, described what happened next:
"I'm at the intersection of Farmleigh and Thorpe, and, just as my family boards for our country holiday, suddenly I see all these chickens follow them onto the bus! I ask the chickens where they're heading, but all I get is squawking. My son interprets this as them wanting to go to the Bishopsgate KFC in London. So we end up making this three-hour, 79-mile journey to London over fried chicken. I ultimately kicked every single chicken off of the bus for being disruptive and carried on."
An employee at the fried chicken place in question then described the chaos that unfolded afterwards:
" I opened the door to see who was tapping at the door, and all of a sudden there is this feathery swarm of bodies flying past me! A flock of chickens had entered our restaurant, and that caught our boss's attention in a hurry. He tried to close the kitchen, but the chickens managed to get into the bags of chicken we had in the freezer and just dragged them all over the floor. The farm owner showed up after five minutes and we were able to evict the unwanted guests from the premises."
The reason for the chickens' bizarre behaviour remains unclear.
