      Backyard Chicken Boom Produces Unwanted Roosters
      By Annys Shin, The Washington Post, Nov. 23, 2012

      "The question of what to do with Hanz — and other roosters like him — is an
      unforeseen byproduct of the growth of backyard chicken flocks." The article
      includes statements by UPC president Karen Davis & video featuring Terry
      Cummings of Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, MD outside
      Washington, DC: http://wapo.st/UkugU2

      (Within the past week, UPC adopted two new roosters: Biskwik from the
      Washington, DC Humane Society animal shelter together with three hens: Tisket,
      Tasket, and Beatrice, and Lorenzo from a home in a Raleigh, NC suburb, where
      roosters are not allowed.)
