"Open rescue XXXIII (July 2017)

My friend told me that she lives in a flat with a huge terrace and that she could give a home to a duck or a chicken as her flatmate. So we went out for one chick.

As many times before I was standing in a long hall full of tiny birds. They should be with their moms, they are deep in shit instead. They scream, squeeze to one another, they find it difficult to breathe and to move. For some they are kids, for some just chicken meat.

I bend down for one chick. He is small, just enough to fit into the palm. We go home.

It is a new start for the chick. No slaughterhouse in it. Just a girl he can hug instead of his mom and with which he can share a pillow."
