Rescued Hen, now UPC Sanctuary Resident

Karla and Karen

Karla was rescued from a battery cage operation that was depopulating its buildings of so-called "spent" hens. Karla, is from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She escaped from a truck and was taken to the Lancaster County Humane League last May. We sent a volunteer to get her and two "broiler" chickens. We learned about these three birds as a result of our investigation of a high school cruelty situation involving chickens, in Lancaster, Pa, last Spring. Karla had almost no feathers when she arrived here, but, as you can see, she now has beautiful plumage and she is very active. Karla is also an extremely affectionate hen who loves to be petted and held.
