Belgium – winter 2020 | 99 hens were liberated from an egg farm .
All tough these caged systems are prohibited in Europe from 2012, “enriched” caged are not by far better than their previous systems.
The animals at this egg farm never saw daylight, and don’t have access to clean fresh air, and a minimum of food and water. Some animals had severe leg problems, underweight and respiratory problems, their feathers in rough condition.
In two hours, 2 activists managed to liberate 99 birds and still handling the animals with respect and caution, bringing them to a safe location to recuperate and heal before send to adoption.
All now live a life free from harm at homes with excellent accommodations.
