When you dont wanna share your food, but your friend really wants some..
Danzig’s Roost is one of thousands of farmed animal sanctuaries. What stands us apart is we focus on chickens, the underdog of the farmed animal sanctuary world. Not only do we focus on chickens, but we focus on roosters specifically. Roosters are the most abused bird on the entire Earth. In the face of the most passionate farmed animal advocates, even roosters are ignored and passed over for the more cuddly animals like calves and piglets and baby goats. We fight against all odds. We face a society that doesn’t even consider chickens to be animals at all. In the eyes of society, our mission might be as absurd as rehabilitating asparagus. This is why we are so needed. It takes strength and fortitude to continue the fight for these birds. Consider these quotes found in articles that mention fighting roosters: “There is no sanctuary for fighting birds,” said Don Barre, a spokesperson for the organization. (Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control “This is because they are very aggressive and cannot be housed with any other chickens. Even the hens would attack other hens. These are not pets.” “There's no happy ending for these birds. Unlike dogs that have been forced to fight, roosters cannot be rehabilitated. A long and restful life on a sanctuary farm someplace is not in the cards.” “This is because there's not much going on in their rooster brains apart from the urge to kill other roosters — to slash and tear and maim until the blood flows.” “Officials said the roosters will have to be euthanized because they can't be rehabilitated and were likely injected with steroids and other chemicals.” Where does anyone begin with an entire society that believes these things about chickens? The task is daunting. Our mission is to end the suffering and use of these birds and in order for us to do that, we have to change the minds of billions of people. We need everybody who cares at all about other beings and the suffering of vulnerable animals to be brave enough to go against the crowd and speak up.
