Poultry Press
Celebrating 24 years of dedicated activism for domestic fowl

This February 2014 Chicken Run Rescue calendar photo is by Irena Shuke, courtesy of Chicken Run Rescue. In this photo, Albert is participating in the World Animals Day celebration organized by a local animal sanctuary in Malta. Irena says Albert touched many hearts during his short life and that children and adults alike were deeply drawn to him. She writes that Albert “knew his name perfectly and always used to come running when I called him amidst our other 100+ feathered sweethearts in the yard.” To order your 2014 calendar and submit your own chicken photos for next year’s Chicken Run Rescue calendar contest, contact chickenrunrescue@comcast.net.

Thank you United Poultry Concerns and Animal Place for this important and informative conference.” Russ Walker, Marin Humane Society
