It’s so fun to watch the birds as the guests of honor during this holiday that where so many are killed and consumed. After the ceremony, I was interviewed by YNN for a story that aired on Sunday.
|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.
Please donate if you can. The Farm Sanctuary needs funds to help with the medical costs faced by these poor animals.
Twenty-five years ago, the Farm Sanctuary began rescuing farm animals, educating the public about the horrific conditions on factory farms, livestock auctions and slaughterhouses, and advocating for laws that protect these wonderful beings. In March, they’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $50,000 to continue their important, lifesaving work. Please donate if you can!
