Alex was saved from a market where people come to pick out animals to be butchered and bought. Living in a filthy cage, watching the animals around her be killed in front of her, waiting for her turn, she had only a prayer for mercy. Luckily Alex and her four sisters were saved and brought to The Gentle Barn to live the life that all animals deserve. Scared at first, Alex soon learned to forgive the past and trust us. She spent her life with us eating greens and berries in the morning, popcorn parties each afternoon, and being tucked into bed each night with kisses. Sadly, because chickens are genetically engineered to lay more eggs than is natural, Alex haad reproductive issues that ended her life at only four years old. We miss her every day and will continue to tell her story so that one day, all we will do with chickens is hold them!
