Thousands of chickens were killed by the fire at the Boulder Valley Poultry egg farm in Roggen.
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - The Greeley Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/IqWup7 ) the fire Monday killed 500,000 hens, affecting one of the state's top egg producers.
Colorado Egg Producers Association President Jerry Wilkins says that because egg demand is typically low this time of the year, and because many local producers have agreed to step up in response to Boulder Valley's losses, the effects of this week's fire are expected to be minimal.
