International Respect for Chickens Day at Chicken Run Rescue in Minnesota
International Respect for Chickens Day, Saturday, 12-3pm, May 4, 2019
“Our curse on them isn’t extinction but
-- Karen Davis, PhD, United Poultry Concerns
This year’s event will have a message: Count Every One, Every One Counts. CRR limits the number of birds who live here because we want to honor each and every bird as an individual. Our first responsibility is to the birds already in our care. We cannot help all the birds, but we share our almost 20 years of experience with others who want to help them.
The goal of this year’s event is to have as many adult guests as birds (60 at this writing) to celebrate in the safety and comfort of their own garden. This event will be documented with a group photo of everyone holding a bird to show the caring and solidarity of people who embrace the idea: THIS chicken in my arms is the Whole Point.
INTERNATIONAL RESPECT FOR CHICKENS DAY May 4/Month of May is an annual project of United Poultry Concerns started in May 2005 to celebrate chickens and educate the public about the plight and delight of these wonderful birds. We urge everyone to participate!
