The Social & Secret Life of Chickens Lecture: Wednesday, December 30th

“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

Mercury - a sweet and gentle rooster - was rescued from a fighting cock ring and scheduled to be killed at animal control. Empty Cages intervened and saved his life.

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.
