About Chicken Run Rescue
Chicken Run Rescue fosters an evolution in critical thought about who is food and who is friend through rescue, rehabilitation, sanctuary and education.
Help all animals by adopting a vegan diet. Help individual chickens by adopting them as companions.
The Real Cost of Eggs:
- laying hens have been bred to lay incessantly. Chickens in the wild lay fewer than 20 eggs a year and live to 30 years old. Contemporary laying hens lay between 300 and 350 eggs a year and develop reproductive disease which is the cause of up to 90% of mortality in egg-laying flocks beginning at the age of 2 years old. It is a protracted and horrible death. Google “laying hens and ovarian cancer” and “egg yolk peritonitis in laying hens” and choose “images".
- for every laying hen there is a dead or abandoned rooster. Google “male chicks”.
- chickens are Tropical Jungle Fowl and need serious and costly protection in Minnesota’s extreme hot and cold climate.
