International Respect for Chickens Day, May 4, celebrates the dignity, beauty and life of chickens and protests against the bleakness of their lives in farming operations.
For a glimpse into the life of a caged hen, have a look here
My gorgeous girl Rosie doing her thing to help save chicken-kind. Rosie was purchased from a lady who rescues chickens from factory farms and re-homes them. Rosie had never felt the dirt beneath her feet, nor felt sunshine or eaten green things when she was in cage hell. When she stopped laying eggs every day, she became worthless and would’ve ended up as pet food had a dear kind lady not come her way.
Rosie has a forever home with me and my small, but growing menagerie of rescued critters. My gift to her – freedom and respect!
