Storm damages Gordon Co. chicken farm

Posted: Updated:

The storm that wreaked havoc in Adairsville also caused major damage in Gordon County. Just outside of Calhoun, a chicken farm was severely hit by the extreme weather.

The owner of the chicken farm, Tony Thomas, says eight of his buildings were leveled by the storm.

"The tornado came across through here, and damaged all these chicken houses. It's pretty bad," said Thomas.

Thomas says it's going to take awhile to clean up, and rebuild. He says it will take several months to recover.

According to Thomas, he raises chickens for Tyson, and has people coming out to try and save the chickens that survived.
