'one of the best in Sweden' according to themselves.
It was a complete hellhole. 10's of thousands of young hens were there,
never able to see day light. Their eggs are stolen every day and they are
just waiting for their death sentence, although they are completely
After about 1,5 years these lovely ladies will be burnt for heat at the
power plant, just after being brutally smashed in a truck, four at the

One can simply go in there and save them.
We are their only hope.
