Free-roaming chickens in Sin Ming look set to continue living off the land there after they were, more or less, bestowed a new lease of life.

Free-roaming chickens in Singapore have been in the spotlight after they were flagged by Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).
It was recently revealed that more than 20 chickens around Thomson View and Blocks 452 to 454 Sin Ming Avenue area have been put down after receiving 20 complaints from residents last year.
Yap Him Hoo, director-general of the AVA, explained that culling free-roaming chickens is a preventive measure against bird flu.
