After rescuing many battery hens, I am in awe of the hearts and love of life these creatures have. We provide them with food and shelter and they provide us with smiles every single day. I love how they run to the car when I deliver donated food to the back barn. They love to jump into each box as I put it down, sorting through the top layer for the best treats for them and their friends. I laugh how they surround Percy the pig when he gets his small scoop of grain and how he gently moves them aside with his snout when reaching for a tasty morsel. But, what really blows me away is their forgiveness and will to live.

One hen, Fern, I found recently with a severe wound,. She had a flap of skin hanging, under her wing, exposing skin and bone. I picked her up and cleaned it and bandaged it and for a few nights she slept in our bathtub. Now, almost 3 weeks later, she is part of the chicken coop, sunning herself, catching bugs and eating grass, all sporting her turquoise vet wrap. She quietly lets me change it every couple of days.  She demonstrates the will to live that these little creatures have. She inspires me.
