Allan and Dave came to us as two very young roosters. They were found dumped in a cardboard box on the side of the road in Camden, NSW.
Sadly it is not just the commercial egg industry that views roosters as waste products. Many councils do not allow people to keep roosters, and as they do not lay eggs they are often viewed as 'useless'. Roosters are indeed the hidden casualties behind our consumption of eggs, and we urge you to think of them when considering your choices to consume eggs and products that contain eggs.
Aside from sea creatures, Chickens are the most exploited of all animals on earth. Did you know that for every 100 animals killed for food, 98.5 are chickens? Chickens are complex and intelligent birds who are often underestimated and undervalued.
