The chickens

The more I see the natural behaviours from our free range hens - the more I am angry and disgusted with the hen/ chicken farms/factories. Our hens are let out first thing in the morning and are only shut in when we all go out and at night. They are even free to lay their eggs where they want. They tend to make a nest hidden in the undergrowth. It helps them that I am always cutting down and pruning trees which gives them an ever changing environment. To see them scratch away and socialise and sun bath together they have even made a large hole in the ground at the base of the pepper tree for a dust bath. This is so deep that they are almaost underground.

When I think about hens and chickens forced to live crammed in cages makes me really angry and sick to my stomach. It didn't help my mood when I watched Jamie Oliver's program on the subject.

Join the movement and we'll start a revolution - stop all unnecessary shopping - seperate your needs from your wants.
