Charting the changing consciousness toward chickens that is now happening in contemporary art, academia, and animal rights advocacy, this fascinating, beautifully designed book is a treasure trove of images and writings about chickens, their friends and foes, for everyone who cares about chickens and seeks to enlighten others.

the ultimate betrayal
The Ultimate Betrayal:
Is There Happy Meat?

By Hope Bohanec

The Ultimate Betrayal lifts the veil of secrecy surrounding animal farming, offering a rare look inside the world of alternative animal agriculture. Drawing on research, worker and rescuer testimony and meeting the farmed animals themselves, The Ultimate Betrayal explores the recent shift in raising and labeling animals for food and the misinformation around this "new way" of farming. Small-scale farms are the latest craze and various methods of alternative animal agriculture carry feel-good labels. It is now popular to say that your eggs are cage-free and your meat is organic. But is this trend really the answer to the problems of raising animals for food? What do the labels really mean? Are these products truly humane, environmentally friendly or healthy? The Ultimate Betrayal offers answers to these critical questions.

with the eyes of love

Christa Blanke, With the Eyes of Love: Dispatches from the Front Line

Animals’ Angels Press

This book by the Rev. Christa Blanke, founder of Animals’ Angels in Germany, tells, in the form of a dark poetic diary, about the people who are there when cows, pigs, horses and birds are transported to their deaths, gathering the evidence and preparing the documents for legal cases. These fearless people reveal what is done to farmed animals at auctions and animal markets every day throughout the world. If it weren’t for their testimony, these animals would pass anonymously into oblivion. With the Eyes of Love lets us visualize them and those who bear witness on their behalf. Available from UPC

Ninety-Five : Meeting America’s Farmed Animals in Stories and Photographs

An anthology of photos and stories by No Voice Unheard Editors: Marilee Geyer, Diane Leigh and Windi Wojdak


Minny's Dream

Minny’s Dream by Chickens’ Lib founder Clare Druce is a powerful and moving story about a young girl’s encounter with a “battery hen” named Minny, who begs her friend Paula to set her free. Should Paula help Minny and risk being arrested? Risk her parents’ wrath? Minny’s “dream” is the caged hen’s “ancestral memory” of who she really is and how she was meant to live, told in her own words.

Minny’s Dream dramatizes the story of the plight of chickens from the tropical forest to the battery cage and the moral issues involved in whether to rescue or not to rescue. “Paula knows she must stand up for what she believes in, but can she succeed against the odds?”
