Among Animals 3

Winky is a Cornish Cross hen rescued from kaporot, a ritual slaughter performed by a very small group of Orthodox Jews. She was rescued by Tikkun Olam Farm Sanctuary in 2019 when she was six weeks old; one of her eyes had been injured and could not be saved.

Winky lives at the Tikkun Olam sanctuary, where she will spend the rest of her life among other rescued animals and loving staff and volunteers. Tikkun Olam, which means “repair the world” in Hebrew, is a sanctuary in Southern Oregon that rescues and provides forever homes to abused, abandoned, neglected, and unwanted farm animals including chickens, goats, sheep, cows, and pigs.
