As part of our Humane Hoax Online Summit Series, join us September 12 for this FREE event dedicated to our feathered friends. Learn from experts about the many issues that impact chickens who are the most exploited animal on earth, accounting for 97 percent of the farmed animals bred and killed for food. For every one pig who is slaughtered, 60 chickens are killed. For every one cow who is slaughtered, 190 chickens are killed. Each year approximately 35 million cows are killed, yet 35 million chickens are killed per day. It is critical that animal advocates focus their efforts on the plight of these sensitive and complex birds.
We have a prestigious line up of speakers for our Chicken Webinar who will enlighten us about the hidden truths of the chicken meat and egg industry, the humane hoax of “cage-free” and “free-range” eggs, backyard chicken keeping as well as the resulting tragedy for roosters, and Kaporos, a religious ritual that causes thousands of chickens to be killed in the streets each year in September. A panel of devoted activists will wrap up the day ready to inspired you with ideas on how to take action for chickens.
