Animal Place intern Andrea White captured these precious moments of hens rescued from battery cages experience snow for the first time. In July, Animal Place rescued 3,000 hens, saving them from being gassed by an egg farm – standard practice when hens reach the age of 1-2 on egg farms.
If you want to help animals like these hens – consider veganism. So long as hens are seen as “egg factories” and commodities, they will be treated with callous disregard as will their brothers. Male chicks are all killed when they are born – 150-200 million a year.
