"At WLABC all birds are created equal."
Deciding "it was inappropriate to be a bird club that eats birds," the
West Los Angeles Bird Club voted this summer to go veggie. WLA Bird Club
President Mira Tweti told UPC, "It goes against our mission statement to

The vote followed UPC member Cherylynn Costner's mesmerizing talk at the
group's May meeting about the beauty and dignity of chickens. Cherylynn,
who runs the Hillary Chicken Memorial Fund (310-455-0390), brought
several chickens to the meeting and fed the enthusiastic audience
delicious vegan cuisine from Elaine's, the famous LA vegan caterer. That
"You Don't Have to Have Birds, You Just Need to Love Them!" The West Los
