When they try to silence you for being the voice of the voiceless, speak louder. ✌🏼️ #endspeciesism #friendsnotfood #melbournepigsave #melbournechickensave #vegan

#melbournepigsave and #melbournechickensave compassionate activists everywhere. <3

A Melbourne Pig Save vigil earlier this week. The pigs were curious right until the end. They sniffed and licked us. They accepted water. They sought hope. 
It's heartbreaking.

Today at Diamond Valley Pork Slaughterhouse Vigil with #melbournepigsave and #melbournechickensave we bore witness from 0300 to 1100.
Why? Because they need us to speak for them through our shared images and experiences.
While we live in ignorance, atrocities will continue. My life is dedicated to creating a #kinder #healthier #compassionate and #empathetic world.
Nothing unites people like kindness. Nothing generates more kindness than rejecting all forms of violence.

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

We had a tiny little visitor at the joint Melbourne Pig Save and Melbourne Chicken Save rally on Saturday 🐣
Seven (saved on the seventh) is a broiler hen who was destined for slaughter. Her rescuers found her discarded with the 'spent' laying hens marked for death. With a lot of love and care we can hope that she can live a long and healthy life. To save even more precious little chickens, please leave them and their eggs off your plate ❤

Melbourne chicken save work to inform the public about the horrible way that the chickens are treated in the meat and egg industry. Billions of chickens around the world are forced to live a life full of pain, sickness, misery and torture just to satisfy your wants. Please join the Melbourne chicken save and make a difference. Speak up for those who can't 🐣

Nearly #bedtime my little #chickadees
Mac, the #cats and I are over there 3-4 times a day fussing about with them, let Mac in when I was doing some cleaning of feeders and water etc today and as expected completely gentle and low key around them as he is with everyone ❤
Im still not happy with their nesting box arrangement so will have to get the builder back. I have tried a different configuration each night and I can tell none are ideal...
These gals are higher maintenance than a #kardashian but way lovelier ❤😉

#goodmorning ladies ❤❤❤did you sleep well?
It's noisy for a #peaceful place isn't it 😆 all those raucous #bird sounds from the locals! The #factoryfarming life then a suburban #kindergarten had a whole different set of noises I bet.
Rainy and humid this morning when I opened the door before I went to gym, they weren't keen to get up in the half light but were out scratching about happily when I got home at 9. Rain came and back in they went for a few mins 😆
Suzi and Happy you may be middle aged and peri-menopausal but hey, you're in good company 😂😂😂

AUSTRALIA:
#batteryhens share a cage with 3-20 other hens and are allocated a space to the equivalent or less than that of an A4 sized paper.

Right now in Australia, it is estimated that between 11-12 million ‘battery’ hens are confined to small cages as part of standard egg production, unable to perform even their most natural behaviours.

Battery cages are used on factory farms to confine egg-laying hens. Despite increasing community awareness about their plight, the vast majority of egg-laying hens live this way, permanently warehoused with tens of thousands of other birds until their slaughter.

Permanent confinement:
Hens in battery cages spend their lives in artificially lit surroundings designed to maximise laying activity.
Each hen has anywhere between 3 and 20 cage mates. Depending on their body size, the number of hens per cage, or in which jurisdiction they reside, each hen can be allocated space less than that of an A4 sized piece of paper.5 This is insufficient room to act on natural instincts and comfort behaviours like wing flapping, grooming, preening, stretching, foraging and dust bathing.

According to animal welfare expert Dr John Webster, “the unenriched battery cage simply does not meet the physiological and behavioural requirements of the laying hen, which makes any quibbling about minimum requirements for floor space superfluous”. Rather than give hens more space, farmers 'debeak' baby chicks with a hot blade - so they don't peck the other hens in the same cage. Can cause acute and chronic pain, particularly in older birds, due to tissue damage and nerve injury. In addition to the pain caused during and immediately following amputation, scientists believe the process can cause the beak to develop long-lasting and painful neuromas or tumours. And that's not even the start of their torture.

After 23 years here, The last 10 wishing I had put in an orchard, The day has finally come!!! I'm so excited ❤❤❤
this is also where the chickens I rescue will call home ❤
safe from foxes, shaded from the harsh summer sun and beautiful fruit falling at their little feet ❤❤
this whole project has been and is such a natural and obvious extension of everything I do here and love most in life..
I'm close to tears as I write this because my heart is full ☺I have already chosen names for the first three #chickens who will find #love #life and #liberty here. #thankyou @paulsampsonlandscapes you've been so much more than a #landscaper . You know instinctively what I want and need here. #fruit not fear.
