Did you ever wonder what it’s like to be at a sanctuary? Now you can catch a glimpse of everyday life at the sanctuary, via our new YouTube channnel. We don’t have fancy video equipment, but we can catch brief clips of the chickens, cows, ducks, and horses going about their days. Turn up the volume so that you can hear what we hear all day every day: Roosters crowing to each other in the forest and across the fields.
The ancestors of chickens evolved in South Asian forests. Roosters stay at the periphery of each flock’s foraging area, watching out for predators. They keep track of each other’s position by crowing. You can hear them as you watch some of the ducks at the sanctuary doing the simple things ducks in meat and foie gras factories never get to do: swim and stretch their wings under an open sky.
