Every hen that came to live at Asha Sanctuary was going to be sent to auction and die a horrific death fully conscious. This is standard practice in animal agriculture once the hen's egg production begins to decrease. Sadly, this happens on small farms, free range farms, cage free farm and organic farms as well. Our hens can live in peace, never having to fear a violent slaughter. They can spread their wings as wide as they want, play in the grass and dust bathe in the sun. All our hens need right now are loving adoptive parents who care about them and are willing to help with their care and ongoing needs.
