Meet Peppermint Patty

Meet Peppermint Patty

Peppermint Patty was rescued after falling off a truck on her way to slaughter. She had been used for her eggs during her short life here, and now that winter was approaching and she was getting older she wasn’t laying as much. She had no value to her owners if she couldn’t produce enough eggs and was sent away. A local animal rights group spotted her on the side of the road and stepped in to save her. When she arrived at The Gentle Barn Tennessee she was so scared she wouldn’t even come out of her crate. After just a couple weeks she knew she safe with us though and was jumping in our laps and running to greet us at the door. She got the name Peppermint Patty for her sassy personality and in honor of our beloved Dudley whose favorite candy was peppermints. Peppermint Patty will spend the rest of her life with us here at The Gentle Barn Tennessee and will be reminded every day that her life has value.
