Thank you so much! You’re too kind! You and katnissdoesnotfollowback who also sent me this are both far too kind :) xxx
Hey! I’ll do my best to answer, but please bear in mind I’m on mobile, and I’m terribly hungover (it’s my band mate’s hen weekend, and everyone else is still asleep, but even when I’ve been drinking, I’m an early riser :\)
It’s not just about abuse, it’s about use in general. When you keep an animal, such as a hen, and eat their eggs, you are commodifying them. They don’t lay eggs for us to take. Animals exist for their own purposes and not as machines for us to use.
Modern hens have been force bred into existence and thanks to years of selective breeding, they lay way too many eggs for their own good. Their wild cousins would lay approximately 50 eggs a year, but domestic hens will lay around 320. Each egg is a massive strain on the hen, depleting her nutrients, especially calcium.
In the wild, a hen would lay enough eggs for a brood, would sit on them to hatch them and if it became apparent that they weren’t going to hatch, she would eat the unfertilised eggs to replenish her lost nutrients. Modern hens will just keep on laying and losing those nutrients, so the best thing for the hens is to take their eggs and mix them, shells and all, into their feed. That way the eggs aren’t laying around and attracting predators, and the hens get what’s best for them.
For milk, if I had a cow who had recently given birth and was therefore lactating, that milk would be for her baby, not for me. I don’t need it, her baby does, and who’s to say what would be going ‘spare’ if that makes sense?
On top of that, to be perfectly honest, the idea of eating periods (eggs) and drinking bovine breast milk, is pretty gross!
Hope that makes sense, and I’m sorry if I’ve rambled in my hungover state :)
If you are she could use a little love today. Hop over to her FF and send her a personal message. Let her know that even though she doesn’t have tumblr she has us and is such a huge light in the fandom. She brings joy to my days and I want her to know she does to others as well. <3
I know! I’ll post it as soon as I can but it’s still with Court at the moment. I promise, I’ll put it up online soon as it’s back with me! Sorry it’s taking so long, I thought I’d have it up by now, so thanks for waiting!
Thank you so much, darling! ILY!
loving-mellark replied to your post “Is it bad that I’ve already started next year’s story for S2SL? Ah,…”
No! Me too. I’ve started to draw my fan art for S2SL.
Glad it’s not just me! But you know when you get an idea, and it just kind of takes you… Well, that happened ;) Can’t wait to see what you do!
Is it bad that I’ve already started next year’s story for S2SL? Ah, well… ;)
the owl strikes again…
not exactly 48 hours, but you see, I do have a life out of internet… kinda.
Challenged by the lovely alatarielgildaen;
Drabble prompt: ‘Road trip gone wrong’.
Katniss mumbles under her breath, and I can see her knuckles white from her gasp at the wheel. Her tongue pokes out to wet her lips as she silently reads the traffic signs.
"We’re lost," I say matter-of-factly, my head resting on the passenger window.
"No. We’re not," she practically huffs, shooting me an angry glance as her scowl deepens.
She’s so sexy when she’s wrong.
