many of them are living in small, cramped cages.

I joined WSPA about seven months ago; working for a major international animal welfare organization had always seemed like a dream but now it was a reality. Looking back on my first day, I did not see at the time that my day-to-day routine, to which I had become so accustomed, would change forever.

Did you know the earliest chicken fossil bones were found in China and date back to roughly 5400 BC? In 2000 BC, Egyptians discovered “artificial incubation”, making chickens a readily available food and allowed them to produce a large number of eggs.

My mom owns a small family farm, and among many other animals, she has a lot of hens. She has Bantams and Isa browns and a few unidentifiable ladies. She didn’t always own the farm, but she grew up on a farm and comes from a long line of farmers, so in many ways she was destined to live a farm life. Whenever I can, l spend time with her on the farm helping with the animals. I love collecting the eggs and putting the hens in their coop, where they sleep, at night.

Remember when we were kids and our parents told us to just be ourselves? We eventually figured out that being ourselves is important to our overall ability to thrive and be healthy. When we’re truly comfortable with ourselves and surrounded by friends and family who understand our individual uniqueness, that’s when we’re at our best. And the same is true for animals – they’re at their happiest and most productive when they can just be themselves.
