It's hard to say initially. I'm sure many would get hit by cars, wander in people's yards; some may survive, many would probably starve, some might be adopted as pets. But, because they would no longer be artificially bred by factory farms the population of these animals, I suspect, would drastically reduce and a natural hierarchy would be established within the food chain amongst the animals. Predator animal populations would likely spike due to the increase in easy pray in the initial stages, I suspect; maybe the rats increase because it would be easier for predators to fill on chicken?
