The Hidden Lives of Hens: Rescued Hen Enjoys Freedom for the First Time
The hidden lives of hens: this amazing video follows a group of hens who were rescued from a standard practice egg farm after the farmer had a change of heart.
Following their 2-3 years confined in battery cages, hens’ bodies cannot cope with the physical burden and can no longer produce eggs at a profitable rate. This is the point at which the entire coop will be killed, despite their natural life span being 8 years or more.
During their short and tragic lives on a standard egg farm, what hens experience is far beyond heartless and nothing short of torture. These marvelous animals deserve our protection and respect but instead are subjected to our callous and cruel dictatorship.
By choosing not to consume eggs, you can be sure less chickens will endure this lifetime of suffering, followed by an untimely death.
