Compassion in World Farming http://www.facebook.com/#!/compassion.za?ref=ts facebook post below, has generated massive activity on our blog, and the offer from a number of different people to rescue and re home some hens. If this is something you are interested in doing, please leave a note for me on the blog, and I will get in touch via e-mail.
Compassion in World Farming (SA) Candy Ristic runs a chicken rescue and rehabilitation centre in Jhb. The April issue of Animal Voice (available soon!) features her first, heartrending experience with a broiler chick (she normally rescues ‘spent’ egg-laying hens). Selectively bred for their meat, at least a quarter of broiler chickens become lame arou…nd the last 20% of their short, 40-day lives – in chronic pain because their skeletons cannot support their extra weight. Read more about Candy’s chickens on her blog (link below).
