Gertie was rescued from a meat chicken factory farm when she was five weeks old- only days before she was to be sent to slaughter. She and 19 of her friends came to experience a world very different from the one they were accustomed to. Instead of an ammonia filled shed, Gertie’s life is now how it should have always been; a safe world with sunshine, fresh air and room to move, choose and scratch around for bugs and other interesting things. Gertie is a typical broiler chicken, she loves people and loves a pat and scratch under her wings and if you sit still for long enough she will climb on your knee.
