On Tuesday morning, Cedar Rapids city leaders held a ceremony with the Cedar Rapids Kernels to mark this day, and the Kernels organization is grateful the city stood behind them during a difficult year.
Five chickens abandoned in a box outside a Cedar Rapids Theisen’s are now safe at their new home. The chickens were found Sunday crammed in a box outside the store on 16th Avenue Southwest. They were left in the heat, with a sign listing them as free. Rescuers told us the chickens didn’t have room to move and had gone to the bathroom on each other.
