The early bird gets the worm -- and the early adopter gets the chicken.

All 80 of the clucking, egg-laying, injured hens that arrived Wednesday at the Marin Humane Society have been adopted. After knocking down the price-per-hen to five bucks -- chickenfeed, yes -- the hens moved in 29 hours

These birds were part of a larger flock treated at an animal sanctuary near Vacaville for injuries incurred from tight plastic bands being attached to their legs.

More birds may be up for adoption in Marin soon. Our message for the Marin Humane Society hasn't yet been returned. But you can always squawk at them at (415) 506-6225.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
