UPC President Karen Davis Presents “The Social and Secret Life of Chickens:
A Lecture with Visuals & a Book-Signing” in New York City, December 30, 2009
Please join Karen Davis at the Mid-Manhattan Library, 455 5th Ave, 6th floor, NY City, December 30, 2009, at 6:30pm, for a stimulating presentation about chickens.
My experience with chickens for more than twenty years has shown me that chickens are conscious and emotional beings with adaptable sociability and a range of intentions and personalities. I will relate my personal stories about the chickens at our sanctuary to how chickens are treated in factory farming and live poultry markets.
Immediately following my talk I will sign copies of my book Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry (New Edition 2009).
