“We are a young couple with a dream to create a self sufficient eco horse and animal sactuary. We are now a registered charity

We want to rehabilitate as many horses as possible and offer eco holidays on our farm in a cave house or a mongolian yurt to fund the charity. Our passion is to rescue all the animals (so far. Pigs, dogs, cats, tortoises, Guinea pigs, rabbits, hedgehogs, chickens, goats, horses) we can.

We are passionate about sustainability as well, EVERYTHING is built from scrap and waste material. We eat “freegan” as all of our food comes from supermarket and farm waste. We are also on solar and our water systems are all sustainable too.

Our project is beautiful but hard work, we get the balance of working as a team to make it happen but enjoying the experience of back to basic living.”

In the case of chickens, being born male can be a serious problem. If you are born in intensive farming, you will almost certainly not make it past the first day of life. Male chicks do not produce eggs and consequently cannot, ├ža va sans dire, become laying hens. Not only that: they also have a slower development which makes them less competitive even as future steaks of meat for human consumption, since there are broilers that have been genetically selected at the source – they are chickens that grow much more and much faster – and which usually follow a different production path from that of laying hens. As a result, they are virtually useless for companies. If they were to keep them alive, they would have to feed and care for them and this would represent an additional cost, and moreover a non-repayable one. And so the sooner they are eliminated the better. Usually this happens, in fact, on the first day of life, while they travel on a conveyor belt that takes them to the scrutiny of experts in determining, at first sight, their sex. If they are female they are left on the belt and set off on their new life as egg or meat producers (of themselves). If they are male they end up in a shredder that in a few seconds turns them into lifeless mush.
