Students Excited to Learn about Chickens & Turkeys!
By Karen Davis, President of United Poultry Concerns

Monday July 22, 2013 was a great day. I drove from Machipongo, VA to Salisbury, Maryland on the Eastern Shore to talk to four classroom groups of students, grades 6 to 9, about chickens and turkeys and being vegan. Science teacher Corey Haynes invited me to speak to her students at The Salisbury School “to give them a new look at these animals so they can learn to appreciate them.”

I wish I could reproduce the classroom experience, but this picture tells the story. Another teacher who attended my talk said afterward, “What you say about animals – chickens – having emotions, I had never really thought about that before.” Corey said several of her students, inspired by the experience, were “creating vegetarian plans.”
