Police were called to reports of chickens trying to cross the road on the southbound M6.
The birds first started causing a flap at around 10.45am on October 3 at junction 27 one mile south of Charnock Richards services.
Highways England made their way to the egg-citing incident, but were unable to find any trace of the birds.
Some drivers are reported to have slowed down, but there was no real impact on traffic a spokesman for Highways England said.
