Today is International Respect for Chickens Day

May 04, 2013 -- 10:21am

This month is International Respect for Chickens Month, and a group that promotes the humane treatment of chickens on farms is encouraging people to take an action FOR chickens.

Today is the ninth annual International Respect for Chickens Day. The day is a project that was started by the group United Poultry Concerns to celebrate chickens throughout the world, and to protest what they say is the bleakness of their lives on chicken farms. People are being encouraged to do something as simple as talking with your family or hosting a vegan open house to highlight how people can help chickens on farms.
