News from the Natural World: Protesting Hens have called for the second strike in a single week. No eggs for you. Dozens of hens have called for a strike on Thursday, the second in a week, to protest the sale of their eggs to neighbouring farms. This is not the first time eggs have been a point of contention on the farm. The previous government under Farmer Jones profited from this sort of commerce and Animal Farm architect Old Major promised that the new regime would halt these types of transactions. Now, under the new leadership of Comrade Napoleon, the sale of eggs has recommenced under the guise of “sacrifice,” much to the outcry of hens, chickens, and roosters of the farm. To take their clutching away now during the winter sitting would certainly be murder, they argue; “We would rather see our eggs smashed on the floor then give them up to the humans,” said one rabble-rousing hen.
