International Respect for Chickens Day

Chicken Friend at the Farm Sanctuary

In the time it takes you to read this post, nearly 10,000 chickens will be killed for food. The conditions in which they live are horrific. On factory farms, birds are confined in such small quarters, it would be similar to you living your entire life in the space of a folding chair. They are bred in such a way their poor little legs have trouble supporting their bodies, and often their beaks and feet are mutilated. Chicken factory farms and slaughterhouses also create significant pollution in their communities.

Chicken are empathetic, intelligent creatures who deserve better. Please think of chickens today, on International Respect for Chickens Day, and resolve to advocate for legislation that protects chicken.
