Chickens have individual personalities, distinctive identities, and unique ways of expressing themselves. Native to the forests of India and Southeast Asia, factory-farmed chickens never feel the sun or soft grass or see the sky overhead. They never know the comfort of a mother hen’s wing or the pleasure of parenting their chicks. Every day in the United States and the world, tens of millions of chickens are raised in filth and misery and are brutally slaughtered. They go to slaughter sick, crippled, and filled with diseases that get passed to consumers – Salmonella, Campylobacter, Listeria, Avian Influenza, Arthritis, and more. Chicken is NOT a health food.
United Poultry Concerns works to relieve the suffering of chickens, turkeys and other domestic fowl and to teach people about these wonderful birds. Chickens have voices. We are their Voice. Please join us, To learn what you can do to help, contact:
