      Green Festival Presentation by UPC President Karen Davis, Sunday in
      Washington, DC!

      Is Backyard Chicken-Keeping an Ethical Alternative to Factory Farming?

      Saturday-Sunday, September 21-22: Green Festival, Washington, DC
      UPC will host an exhibit table & UPC President Karen Davis will speak on
      Backyard Chicken-Keeping at 2:00pm Sunday on Stage B.

      Backyard chicken-keeping has benefited chickens somewhat as people who
      previously knew chickens only as food discover how delightful chickens are as
      living creatures. However, it has also attracted people who mistreat their
      birds, know little or nothing about chickens and their needs, and brag on the
      Internet about their own abusiveness. It has also fostered a bustling chick
      hatchery business involving the same kinds of factory-farm cruelties that small
      farm practitioners and backyard enthusiasts claim to reject. As the popularity
      of backyard flocks in urban and suburban areas has grown, animal shelters and
      sanctuaries are inundated with calls to take in unwanted chickens, particularly
      roosters. Karen will discuss the pros and cons of keeping backyard chickens,
      what chickens need for happiness and wellbeing, and what you need to do if you
      are considering or already have a backyard flock.
