Time:
10 AM to 5 PM

On Saturday, June 24th, United Poultry Concerns will hold our Tenth Annual Mourning Vigil for Chickens, in Ocean City Maryland. Those long metal buildings on the way to the beach are filled with thousands of young birds who will never see a blade of grass or stretch their wings in the warm sunlight or feel the soft feathers of a mother hen, or hear a rooster crow. The poor parent birds are locked up inside another prison.

Please join us in speaking out for these birds on the boardwalk at the beach. We will display banners and posters and distribute thousands of leaflets to boardwalkers. We will hold mounted color photos illustrating a six-week old chicken's life from the chicken house through the slaughter house. We need you!

Directions: In Ocean City, Md turn onto North Baltimore Street. Go 5 blocks and make a right onto 5th Street. 5th Street runs straight to the boardwalk. That's where we'll be. Plan to car pool from your area. For information about car pooling from Washington DC, call Franklin at 301-564-9164 or email franklin@smart.net.

The Mourning Vigil For Chickens Is An Annual Event Sponsored By United Poultry Concerns Promoting The Compassionate and Respectful Treatment Of Chickens And Other Domestic Fowl.
