      International Respect For Chickens Day Celebrates Compassion for Chickens
      United Poultry Concerns Urges Positive Action for Chickens, May 4 / Month of May

      Machipongo, VA, USA - On Saturday, May 4, animal advocates celebrate
      International Respect for Chickens Day.
      http://www.upc-online.org/respect/

      Launched by United Poultry Concerns in 2005, International Respect for
      Chickens Day celebrates chickens throughout the world and protests the suffering
      of chickens in farming, cockfighting, experimental research, hatching projects
      and other activities that mistreat chickens.

      "We urge everyone to do a compassionate ACTION for chickens, on or around May
      4," says Karen Davis, president of United Poultry Concerns, an organization that
      promotes compassionate treatment of domestic fowl.

      "We invite people to hold an office party or a classroom celebration, leaflet on
      a busy street corner, write a letter to the editor, do a radio call-in, table at
      their local church, shopping mall or community festival," Davis explains. "A
      library display, a delicious vegan open house, an informative blog post, or simply
      talking to family and friends about the plight – and delight – of chickens and how
      people can help them are great ways to help chickens."

      To celebrate International Respect for Chickens Day in the Nation's Capital,
      United Poultry Concerns is running [4]100 King-Size Bus Posters and will leaflet
      and talk with visitors at the [2]White House on May 4 from Noon to 3pm about
      "What Wings are For."

      "[3]Happy chickens are cheerful birds," says Davis, who maintains a sanctuary
      for chickens on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. "Chickens love the earth and the
      sun, yet the majority of chickens are sitting in filthy dark buildings on
      crippled legs breathing polluted air. At the slaughter plant chickens are
      riddled with paralytic electric shocks while fully conscious as described in my
      book [4]Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs. After they are dead,
      [5]salmonella-infected chickens are soaked in toxic chemicals. Misery is not a
      health food – for anyone!"

      The entire month of May is International Respect for Chickens Month. For
      information, contact United Poultry Concerns, a nonprofit organization that
      promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl.
