International Respect for Chickens Day

Tomorrow, May 4th, is International Respect for Chickens Day.

Just like dogs & cats, chickens have distinct personalities and are sweet & enjoyable companion animals. Also, the more chickens are studied, the more it has been seen that they also have amazing cognitive abilities and emotional capacities. They display empathy and are very intelligent birds. Plus, there's the belief that chickens evolved from dinosaurs, so we really should be nice to them ... just in case.

This May, celebrate chickens through out the world and protest the misery & bleakness of their lives on factory farms. If you still eat eggs and/or chicken meat, please consider not eating these animal products at least on May 4th. Maybe try an egg substitute or do some research on kindly, happily keeping your own chickens to spoil and get healthier eggs from.

Come on, for just one day you can eat plant-based foods - fruits, veggies, whole grains, beans, seeds, nuts, etc.
