Thank you thank you thank you for you contribution to this important awareness campaign

Our first broiler rescued a few years ago (genetically modified meat chicken). His name was Bello and he grew to 8.5 kgs in an alarmingly short time, eventually no longer able to support his own weight, we had to euthanase. I will never forget my first broiler heartbreak, and I could not have predicted how many times my heart would be broken again by a dear sweet broiler. Genetically modified to go from 0 to slaughter in 6 weeks, these noble birds are reduced to eating machines, experiencing the pain and discomfort of accelerated growth, and slaughtered while still babies. This is the reality of the meat industry.

Almost a month ago we launched our ‘month of glorification of the chicken’ in honour of world animal day. We asked you, our community, to answer some questions for us on life with chickens and share your stories, and photos. What fabulous submissions we have had. An outpouring of love and an important documentation of the intelligence and depth of feeling chickens are capable of given the opportunity. I have delighted in reading every submission we have received and we have had fabulous feedback from other people too.
If you have missed our posts, please give yourself a ‘feel good’ treat go and read through some of our posts. We received 29 in total. 2 shy of our 30 submission goal, and so yesterday ended our 28 days of submissions.

A BIG thank you to all those people who contributed to this worthwhile awareness campaign, and a BIG thank you to all those who read the posts and shared them.

  1. I admire your work and God will bless you. However you promote absolutes like no-no to zoos. Do you know that many zoos , just like you, pet rescued animals? I see your children playing with chickens in bed, that is not cruel, but your article critics all form of petting animals. Do good and let good progress. If you don’t like it, petting, it does not make it evil. Otherwise big ups to you. Eric
