Despite the fact that factory farms are among the cruelest places on the planet, we occasionally come across stories of hope, such as the story of this chicken that fled from a farm, was saved, and eventually found something that many of these creatures will never have: a permanent home.
The fearful animal was able to turn his life around with the support of a married couple and the Open Cage group.
Open Cage is a group that opposes these businesses and is leading a fight to shut down these facilities.
The hen was discovered freezing and hungry in the garden of a house in Denmark in the midst of the winter.
She was afraid and alone after fleeing a farm and sought for a safe haven.
Lina Lind Christensen and her husband, who run an animal sanctuary, were aware of the circumstances and opted to adopt Victoria, the bashful chicken. She slept for several days after arriving home, exhausted after her lengthy escape trek.
Victoria grew to feel protected and found affection and comfort in her human rescuers over time, something she had never experienced before. She felt so comfortable and secure with them that she started acting strangely, such as sleeping with Lina’s husband.
