Well, I think the best thing would to be around friendly chickens. If you’re able to get one or two as pets that would be best, but perhaps there is a petting zoo or a farm nearby with friendly chickens that you could visit to show her that not all chickens are aggressive. I know my gals are very pleasant and none of my birds, including the roosters, are attackers. I can snuggle with quite a few of them, my little one Flourbum, in particular, is the friendliest chicken I have.
It’s unfortunate that your mom had such a bad experience. My mom is iffy about birds because of a large foul-tempered parrot she knew when she was little, whose owner thought it was funny when the bird attacked her. It’s taken some time seeing the chickens interacting with me and my husband for her to be comfortable touching and being around them, but it has helped a lot. She is fine to hold the chickens now, and likes them quite a bit. Not all chickens are created, cared for, and treated equal! Friendliness toward the chickens when they’re being raised is what makes them friendly in return!
I hope that helps!

Labelling the animal products in the corpse aisles. Stickers by Evolve Campaigns. You can get them sent to you or download and print off yourself for free. See here for info: www.tiny.cc/bgvj9w
Yo, while I fully advocate the fact that you’re allowed to do what you want to do and believe what you want to do, this is kind of unnecessary?
There are a lot of ways to make more helpful changes when it comes to the rights of animals, placing stickers which only INCONVENIENCES the workers who are already underpaid because they have to REMOVE them. They don’t get paid enough to do their jobs as it is, and you’re just making it harder. And you know if they can’t remove them the product just gets thrown out because they can’t sell something like that to the public. Basic marketing is to never guilt your customers, y’know???
Plus, I guarantee you, as a red-blooded carnivore, I do not give a fuck what some sticker on a Saintsbury’s bacon packaging is trying to guilt me to do. I want my g-dang bacon bits and I want them now.
There are plenty of organizations, NGOs and civil societies you can join and actually work with to better realize the rights of animals, but making a worker’s job harder and attempting to guilt people through a wee sticker is a laughable attempt at activism.
I love how it’s always BABY ANIMALS
Yeah son everyone knows the best way to make a pork steak is to slaughter 10 baby pigs and mash all that meat together for sure
That aside, if you think any food you eat is innocent, you’re wrong. Unless you’re growing all of your own fruits and veggies and nuts in your own backyard, you’re supporting the abuse of someone or something at some level. We bemoan the chicks and baby ducks and piglets that get slaughtered, but do we ever think about the animals who lose their lives to harvesters or turbines? How about the fact that just planting fields of crops for our veggies takes away another animal’s environment?
If you’re buying imported food (that would be most if not all of your non-regional or seasonal crops), do you know where it came from? What about the conditions in the farms for the human workers? How much were they paid? What sort of hours did they work?
You can feel like a big, smug woman slapping stickers onto meat packages, but you’re doing nothing. You are literally doing the opposite of activism. REAL activism is hard work and takes time. It means having achievable goals and steady methods. ”No one should ever eat meat again because it’s horrible” is not a realistic goal. I could give you a million reasons why (meat is a protein many people rely on, meat is, religiously and culturally, a staple of many diets, meat tastes good), but we’d be here forever.
Instead, I think we should focus on changing the method in which animals are kept, raised, and slaughtered. You might argue that there is no way to humanely slaughter anything, but that’s neither here nor there. Animals are slaughtered, and animals will never stop being slaughtered, and that’s the reality we face. As an omnivore myself, I would gladly pay an extra few dollars for meat knowing the animal was treated well when it was alive and died with dignity. THAT is an achievable goal.
Lastly, shame on you. Honestly. The only people these stickers are going to effect are going to be the workers who have to peel them off, because (and I speak from experience, here) people who buy meat already know where it comes from. You’re not enlightening them or telling them anything they didn’t already know. We’re not five years old. We know how our meat got on our table.
Bottom line: I suspect you get angry when people harass you for being vegan. Show omnivores the same respect, and stop harassing us in return. Respect goes both ways, compadre.
Agreeing with the above statement about how useless the above-pictured “activism” actually is. And to add some fact to the point made above me about no food being “innocent” please refer to this article on the Huffington Post about how the “health food enthusiast”-fuled Quinoa boom is flat-out destroying the economy and environment of Bolivia.
So Skanky isn’t quite as ugly as we thought. We heard him though. He really can’t crow. He leapt out of the box and proceeded to rough up the older hens and let them know who was boss. Clucky Büm was rather put out at first, especially when Pocky palled up with Skanky. Pooty stayed out of the way mostly, though she and Skanky had a quick squabble when he went for her. Her age is an advantage because she’s not breeding age and therefore uninteresting for now. They’ve all settled for the moment and Skanky has given up posturing and displaying for the moment.
If i’m not completely inept at identifying chicken breeds… I’m seeing silver laced wyandottes, speckled sussex, and a freaking adorable Belgian d’uccle?????
I can’t wait to get married because its like a sleepover every night with your best friend.
That’s the cutest description of marriage I’m not even joking
It’s better than ‘betting someone half your stuff that you’ll love them forever’
That is the best way to say that. And people who aren even a little bit concerned that the marriage won’t last should not get married in the first place. Sheesh.
REBLOGGING THIS COULD SAVE A LIFE
These two girls are my best friends, Nicole(brunette) and Becca(blonde). They were recently kidnapped, In Basingstoke, South England, On August,27,2012 at about Midday. Please reblog this post and if you have ANY INFORMATION, ANY, call the police immdiataly. This is the story of Becca and Nicole. So a bit earlier, me and becca were on chatzy. We were you know, being bestfriends and shit until she said, her friend Nicole messaged her “SOS”. She said she was gonna go to Nicoles house and see what she meant. She asked me if she should, and I said yes thinking, why not? She then went to the house and messaged me that Nicole’s house door was open and that her house was empty. She went upstairs to Nicole’s room to check it out and heard a noise, so hid in the shower, with Nicoles computer, frantically messaging me. She then went to check out the noise. I told her to get out or even jump out the window. She then told me someone was in there, and to help her, but I could only freak out, as I was over the computer.The last thing she said was “he saw me, he’s coming” then she suddenly disconnected. I messaged her friend Sarah and was like “help me” so she went to Nicole’s house with her brother. They Said the door was wide open, and Nicole’s computer was in the empty shower. Theyve called the police, and notified her parents. Earlier, they found blood on Nicole’s bedroom floor. The police are testing the blood to see if it is Nicole’s or Becca’s and will launch an investigation. PLEASE pray for my two beloved bestfriends, and that they get home safe. Thank you.
