Butt did his owners listen to his pleas? Hell no, because subconsciously, they obviously believe chickens are made to be roasted, so it's no big deal if he meets the same fate as all his relatives. Butt they did save the cat, who confirmed something was amiss.
As an afterthought though, at least they had a fireman save the chicken. Butt it's a miracle the poor chicken survived that long, due to their isolated location.
Maybe this will set a trend, and people will start keeping chickens as pets, as a backup to their smoke alarms.
