personally speaking, i couldn't care less for saving hens. i do care about eating them though.
i was just looking for references on the net and found a site with one of those animal enthusiasts activists' group. which, on a personal opinion, i feel is so silly it's almost sad. hens aren't even endangered. i don't have beef with people liking animals, but i do get annoyed at all the effort, energy and money on animals instead of people who would really need it.
it seems like i've created a paradox between my work and my description. awesome cool.
