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 under valued.
When you sponsor a rescue hen or rooster at Little oak you will be helping all chickens. Your sponsorship will support Little Oak's essential advocacy work – sharing the stories of individual birds and the plight of their kind across the nation.
Sponsor today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about chickens through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly sponsors. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for the chickens at Little Oak, and their kind across Australia.
