For the fourth year in a row United Poultry Concerns & Delaware Action for Animals will truck to the Delmarva Chicken Festival to Stick Up for Chickens. We will have an information table, full-color posters, and our banner DON'T JUST SWITCH FROM BEEF TO CHICKEN--GET THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE OUT OF YOUR KITCHEN!
This year's protest heralds World Animal Awareness Week & The March for the Animals in Washington DC June 18-24 where you won't find any Diseased Chicken's Breasts, Dead Wings, Chlorinated Chicken's Legs, Seeping Black Bone Pigment, or Salmonella Poison!
Latest studies show that chickens are not only mistreated, made sick, and murdered by the poultry industry; they are much too intelligent for "Perdue." As Dr. Lesley Rogers explains in her book The Development of Brain and Behaviour in the Chicken (1995):
"With increased knowledge of the behaviour and cognitive abilities of the chicken has come the realization that the chicken is not an inferior species to be treated merely as a food source. It should be realized that even vastly improved intensive systems are unlikely to meet the cognitive demands of the hitherto underestimated chicken brain."
United Poultry Concerns and Delaware Action for Animals welcome interviews on Saturday, June 15th at the Delmarva Chicken Festival. Look for our Banner DON'T JUST SWITCH FROM BEEF TO CHICKEN--GET THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE OUT OF YOUR KITCHEN!
