The term "mother hen" isn't just a cute saying to describe someone who cares and worries a lot, it actually is a descriptive fact of how amazing hens are as mothers. Hens care for their chicks with all the protection and love they have in their hearts.
A mother hen will die protecting her chicks. She teaches them everything and is there for them every minute of the day. In hatching programs, chicks don't get to have a mother. They are hatched in an incubator and then put in a brooder for all to watch at the schools,
kindergartens or nursing homes. Whilst watching these bundles of fluff through the glass may be momentarily pleasurable, the fact that these babies have no mothers to protect them and show them how to be chickens is a huge void to these sweet babies.
Denying babies the protection and love of a mother is so incredibly cruel.
This sweet chick was born in this incubator, but is currently sleeping beside me here as I type. I managed to take him or her home to @leftysplace Farm Sanctuary.
I cannot replace his or her mother, but I will try my very best to provide a kind and safe home for this poor little babe - who so desperately just wants a mum.

NOT THAT YOU SHOULD NEED ANY MORE REASONS BUT...Milk and other #dairy products are the top source of saturated fat in the American diet, contributing to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have also linked dairy to an increased risk of breast,
ovarian, and prostate cancers. #Milk and other dairy products are the top sources of artery-clogging saturated fat in the American diet. Milk products also contain cholesterol. Diets high in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease, which remains
America’s top killer. #Cheese is especially dangerous. Typical cheeses are 70 percent fat.

Lactose Intolerance Infants and #children produce enzymes that break down lactose, the sugar found in breast milk and cow’s milk, but as we grow up, many of us lose this capacity. Lactose

How many videos must I post before you realize that the non-human animals (even the ones on your plate) are no different than us?
Repost from @roxannasaurus116

Max and Ruby were living a quiet existence - together, as strays - when one early morning,
Ruby wandered too close to the road. The driver had no regard for Ruby or her life and ruthlessly ran over her body. With no one to care about her, Ruby laid in the middle of the road for hours after. The only living being to stay with her through it all..was Max😭💔
His love and dedication to her outweighed any consequence that might have come from sitting in the road with her. He didn't care if he got hit - so long as she knew she wasn't alone. Ruby, confused and hurting as ever, tried desperately to move her legs..but she couldn't move Image

Every Year, Millions of Newborns Are Killed
For Their Mothers' Milk
All babies born to females used for milk production are torn from their mothers shortly after birth.
They are barely days old, umbilical chord still attached, coat still slick from the birth fluids, legs wobbly,
eyes unfocused. They are defenseless. They are frightened. They cry pitifully for their mothers. They all beg for their mothers in language that requires no translation.
They live their entire short lives as orphans, their only experience of mother love, one of yearning for it,
their only experience of emotional connection, one of absence. Soon, the memory of the mother’s face, her voice, her scent will fade, but the painful, irrepressible longing for her warmth will still be there.

Videos of calves being separated from their mothers are the hardest for me to watch. I’m in tears before the video even starts. And I’m sure 99.99% of the population would feel some sort of emotion when watching this too, yet a large (but decreasing) portion of the world are the
When you buy dairy products, you pay for farmers to kidnap babies from their mothers. You are paying for someone to pull babies away as their mother is still licking the birth fluids off their newborn bodies, to stand and watch as she desperately runs after her baby, pacing and
circling in confusion and despair, blocking the van with her body in a last ditch attempt to not lose her child forever 9 months of carrying her baby inside of her, only to have her motherhood ripped away from her soon after birth, sprinting after her stolen child with a huge

Warning ⚠️Video may be upsetting. Can you hear their desperate calls for help? Their pain is deafening. This heartbreaking footage was taken on the interstate during our most recent transport. This slaughter bond truck had two floors packed with pigs all spray painted with
different numbers on their bodies, as if they were just objects. They were just a few of the 121 million pigs that will be slaughtered just this year alone. Pigs are sent to slaughter at 6 months old, right around when they reach 280-300lbs. Which means that this truck was full
of BABIES. Babies that would naturally live 15-18 years, but they have their lives taken from them to be needlessly consumed. We can do better, they deserve better. If this video breaks your heart, then please consider keeping this beautiful sentient beings off your plate.
