“With increased knowledge of the behaviour and cognitive abilities of the chicken, has come the realization that the chicken is not an inferior species to be treated merely as a food source.” ~ Dr. Lesley J. Rogers, Professor of Animal Behavior
United Poultry Concerns President Karen Davis will be present a lecture on “The Social & Secret Life of Chickens: A Lecture with Visuals & a Book-Signing” on Wednesday, December 30, 2009. The lecture will be held at the Mid-Manhattan Library, 455 5th Avenue, New York City on Wednesday, December 30 at 6:30 PM. Immediately after the lecture, Karen Davis will sign copies of her important book Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry
Karen Davis’ over 20 years experience with chickens has shown her that chickens are conscious and emotional beings with adaptable sociability and a range of intentions and personalities. She will relate her personal stories about the chickens at the sanctuary to how chickens are treated in factory farming and live poultry markets.
