This is my incredibly cute friend Shirley. Every day I look at her and want to squeeze her because she is just so adorable. Shirley was born in a factory in Victoria that sells chickens to battery hen farms. The runty sickly female chicks and all the rooster chicks are considered wastage. They are ground up alive in massive grinders. That's where Shirley was headed when she was rescued from the conveyor belt that was taking her to her death the day she hatched. In fact her little downy feathers had not even had time to dry and turn fluffy. Her siblings are now in steel cages for the rest of their tragic lives. They have less than an A4 sheet of paper in space each. Their lives are miserable. So this is what you support when you buy foods containing egg. Your money supports people who incarcerate beautiful little individuals like my friend Shirley. #rescueanimals#rescuedandloved#brightsidefarmsanctuary#chicken#melbournechickensave#cagefree#loveanimals#egg#friendship#govegan
When I hear how many eggs a chicken has been laying, I cringe. Especially if I see the size of the egg. I can't imagine being so small and pushing something that large out of my body so often. It's completely unnatural and painful.
This image is estimate, after all every chicken is different in how many eggs they produce(& how large the eggs are), and in personality as well. #SyndeyBirdSave#MelbourneChickenSave Repost Sydney Bird Save (Facebook): "HENS HAVE BEEN TAMPERED WITH, THIS IS WHY EGGS ARE ABUSIVE TO THE HENS WE STEAL THEM FROM...they have used genetic modification and abusive methods like "molting" to make sure they lay over 20 times the amount of eggs they naturally do...and buying them from a local farmer is not any kinder, or healthier...eggs are not food for humans, and stealing them to eat them is criminal...a link tells you more about the health factor...we already understand that stealing is a crime...LET THE ANIMALS LIVE THEIR LIVES NATURALLY, WITHOUT ANY HUMAN INTRUSION OR HARM.~Animal Freedom Fighter" #Eggs#Animals#hens#animalrights#vegan#crueltyfree
I've been thinking about you a lot lately. The fact that you never did anything wrong, that you just wanted to live a peaceful life and share love with your herd. The fact that you were tortured, impregnated against your will and had your baby stolen from you repeatedly, until you couldn't give any more. The fact that you're no longer here, and while I take solace in the fact you're no longer suffering, knowing your death would have been terrifying, unnecessary and unjust - it haunts me. I'll never let you be forgotten. I will stand for you always. You and all the others like you, I will share your stories. I will show people that you deserve justice, love, and compassion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I see you. I'm trying.

This is just one of the 500,000 6-8 week old broiler chicks that are murdered at La Ionicas every week. Just babys who have never done any wrong, who have never hurt anyone, never known a life free of oppression, never experienced love or compassion. Never felt the warmth of the sun or breathed fresh air untill tonight when they were transported in tiny crates in freezing conditions, covered in urine and faeces, to the place they would be hung up, have their throats cut, their bodys scladed then dismembered. Look into her eyes, empathise with her. Imagine what she has endured every single day and what she will endure during her last moments.
No being deserves this, especially not the purest and most vulnerable beings on the planet. This is the holacaust.
Choose to live a compassionate life, it will be the most rewarding desicsion you will ever make. www.veganeasy.org / www.aussiefarms.org.au
