Hens as free as birds!
I dropped by John Tedder's farm last week. John has just started producing organic eggs and I put together this little video. I have never seen happier birds, they are tame, friendly highly inquisitive and not at all afraid of humans, this is in stark contrast to how hens in industrial farms are. These hens are living as they are supposed to, free happy and contented with their lot, they can move and enjoy scratching around in the fields cleaning themselves in dust bathes, and really just being free. It is arrogant and cruel for human beings to think it is ok to keep animals locked away in sheds and cages, these are living sentient beings and they have a right to a decent existence and at the very least access to the open air.
