Re: “The Tour de Coop

I work for Animal Place, a nonprofit sanctuary specializing in the rescue of abused farmed animals, including chickens. We operate Rescue Ranch that saves the lives of thousands of hens from the egg industry each year. We have two facilities - Vacaville and Grass Valley.

We currently have more than 1,600 hens available for adoption who were saved from starvation by a California egg farmer. Those interested in adoption can find out more here: http://animalplace.org/adoptable_birds.htm….

I think it is important to remember that the backyard chicken movement has a dark side to it.

Rooster Chicks: Male chicks are killed or used as "packing peanuts" by the hatcheries supplying backyard chicks.

Parent Birds: They are housed inside sheds. They never see the light of day. At the young age of 18-mos-old, they are slaughtered.

Transport: Day-old chicks are shipped through the postal service with no legal oversight and often in any climate conditions, resulting in the unnecessary death of sensitive baby animals (who are never raised by their own mothers, either).

Chickens are intelligent, social animals. They can be wonderful backyard companions. Adopt, don't buy.
