This is a chicken. Her name is Annie. Chickens are social and intelligent. They can distinguish between more than 100 faces of other chickens and have full-colour vision, just like we do. Chickens communicate with more than 24 vocalisations, each with a distinct meaning, including warning their friends about predators or letting their #mothers know whether they’re comfortable. They #love to #play and run, jump and sunbathe when given the chance – yet billions spend their entire lives in cramped sheds with less floor space than a sheet of paper. These intelligent, sensitive #birds are subject to horrific conditions during their short brutal lives. The normal lifespan of a #chicken is over 10 years. Chickens raised for #meat are typically slaughtered when they’re just one month old – for “#freerange” birds, this period increases to almost 2 months old. Male #chicks born into the #egg industry are usually killed as soon as they’re born. Hens in the egg industry suffer miserably for 24 hours a day before they are sent to slaughter after a year or two of grueling production. In reality, all off this suffering is for nothing, because humans have no nutritional requirement for eggs or chicken flesh. A world of #healthy, #delicious and superior #vegan alternatives exists.
There’s no need for chicken cruelty on your plate.
