We Have A Chicken Star!

My daughter's chicken J-Lo is the cover girl for WSPA Choose Cage-Free!

Here's J-Lo sporting the latest in fashion for the newly rescued battery farm hen! ~


Rescued hens get a new start and a new wardrobe at Cobble Hills Farm Sanctuary






While waiting for space, fresh air and sunshine to help her don a new set of feathers, J-Lo favoured a pink, flannel one piece to enhance those elegant legs and the bared shoulder was the height of style at her new rescue home.  In keeping with the trend toward more natural female figures, J-Lo eschews Spanx and lets her tummy curves show.

You can read about J-Lo's amazing (and fashion trendsetting) recovery by clicking here.

If you want to learn a little more about the reason I choose cage free eggs, check out WSPA Choose Cage-Free click here.  It's not gory or radical;  just some facts, topics of discussion and you can take the pledge to eat only cage free eggs.

I did!

  2. As I have stated many times, even though I was warned before hand I wasn't prepared for the horror of seeing those poor creatures when they first arrived at the farm. Haven't eaten a battery farm egg since then! AND I tell every one how will listen.

  4. If I can't get out to buy from one of the many local "egg stands" we have around here, I always try to buy cage free from the store if they are available. I don't know how battery farm owner's sleep at night!

  5. Oh Jlo, her love don't cost a thing! Much like her human namesake she's rockin :)

    They're trying to fully ban cage eggs here but there are a few still persisting. Horrid

  7. That is too cute! I've never seen a chicken in a sweater before but I guess it's necessary for this little one. Poor thing.

  9. Love the threads, totally sporting it. I have seen the chickens and they are on to bigger and better things. I havent eaten a battery farm egg since you told me about the conditions.

  10. Awwwww, i went and read about the chickens. It was really interesting! I only eat cage free eggs too... it is inconceivable that we humans could treat a creature like those factories do... what a disaster

  12. I'm glad to see people are making an effort to eat cage-free eggs. I love the little chicken sweaters and I'm glad people care about animals enough to do this for them. Some people probably think, "It's just a chicken" so who cares. Thankfully a lot of us do.

  13. Cute story. Love the description of J-Lo's outfit. Since you've been writing about chickens I've been buying eggs only from cage-free sources. Thank you.

  14. those poor chickens, so glad there are people to help re-hab them and give them make-overs, for their self-esteem. :)
    Love J-Lo's name, and outfit.
    I'm thinking I need a little bit of an apron for my chickie...she loses her feathers on her back, George is so ruff with her.

    take care, have a great week. Pat
