CONCEPT- NO MORE CRUEL FACTORY FARMING OF CHICKENS!
My friend Bosie has this lovely Chicken, Arietty, in Rye, Sussex, England. He built her a henhouse, bought her a lot of companions. SEE: THE HAPPY POULET. Miss Arietty is the queen of the group, rules the roost. Another animal friend in Venice, California, Vegan Jeff, lives in an RV with his four dogs. They sleep, man and dogs, under the same sheets. This compassionate space case is a west Los Angeles itinerant massage therapist and lifelong vegan meditator. Without difficulty, as he wanders the beaches, he finds clients and can make a very good unfiched living. (See CONFESSIONS OF A BOTTOMFEEDER)
Jeff became famous recently as being DONOR 150, a sperm giver. Google that up as it hit every news show like 20/20 and 60 minutes and became a free standing documentary. He seems to have about 150 kids walking the planet, many in their thirties --a few of whom have contacted him. He's an addition to the race, believe you me, not only being a descendant of Washington Bluebloods but also a mystical, Hermetic messenger for all anti-animal-cruelty movements. but he looks like Down and Out in Beverly Hills. Which is why NORMAN LEAR who has a bunch of kids by Jeff won't even INTRODUCE him to the family!
Guess why he's such a hermit, misanthrope and dog lover? As a child, his parents sent him away to boarding school, making him leave his dog behind. One night, he dreamed the dog was hanging in a tree calling his name. He left the dorm at 2 am, hitchhiked back home, and in the woods, found his dog hanging from a tree, barely alive. JEFF rescued him.
It was Jeff, ironically HIMSELF an egg donor, who first told me about the suffering of chickens in factory farms, how they "live" cooped wing to wing, without possibility of much movement, beaks removed to prevent pecking/ fighting. This was forty years ago. He wanted to do P.R. for the issue and have me type his rant. I sympathized as this is a social, happy little bird which can just as easily wander a yard happily with a few flock friends pecking and flapping wings all day. So I imagine that when they 'live' in a condition of utter TORTURE and we eat them and their eggs, the HORMONES of HORROR are in those FOODS. I noticed that I couldn't eat lamb or veal as those animals suffer and I would react 20 hours later with mega depression.
Those factory farms are the Guantanamos of the bird world. And as an animal lover, Jeff was drawn to their sufferings.
He pointed out to me how easy it would be to create a FUROR with a tiny weeny BIRD sized CHARITY that just did P.R. and parties to do the P.R. I agreed knowing Jeff was the king of furor and any tip from him on hot publicity would work so I wrote a press release. But I live in the sticks far from the big city and I'm older. You young folks follow this up. It's easy to get started! Read up on CHICKEN TORTURE AGENCIES, the GITMO of POULET the ABU GRAHIB of ROOSTERS
at CHANGE DOT ORG, a gooooood website!
Research the proper TERMS" chickens + crowded + inhumane. You'll find other websites. Now, create some POULTRY POSTERS with help of the art classes at local colleges. They can run 'em off on litho press or do originals which (wartorn,) you give back later to the artist. Next, give your first chicken party for the press with a vegan POTLUCK and have a comic guy in a chicken costume there and a lot of downloaded chicken farm pictures! PETA websites may have some CHICKEN FARM pages.
There are over 1 1/2 billion egg laying hens in America. Upwards of 99% are living in conditions which constitute horrific cruelty to animals. VIDEO: CHICKS GROUND UP ALIVE TO BRING YOU CHEAP EGGS, so if you want to see What's an egg hatchery to do with useless male chicks? It grinds them up alive.
GEOFF's PRESS RELEASE
In the USA, The Animal Welfare Act, which governs the humane treatment of animals excludes animals intended for food consumption which is pretty dumb as we're eating the most tortured meat on the planet and wondering why a third of us die of cancer. What we need is a spokesperson for chickens everywhere, who can visit any game, supermarket or sporting event. PUCK PUCK the CHICKEN as a spokeshen might be created, by some young energetic theatre people, to change factory farming in America, starting with egg-laying chickens.
Why are we huffy all the time? Me and my gal pals? All roosters
are killed when they're little more than TEENS. We're suffering bigtime!
The proposed activism on behalf of hens and roosters has two aspects:
#1: a Public Relations campaign starting at any ballgame or supermarket opening or public parade, (In LA that would be the Pasadena Doo-Dah parade) with posters and skits geared to educate the American public as to their options, egg-wise. Chicken LIFE STYLE wise.
Lately, consumers can choose caged or cage-free eggs at the supermarket. The introduction of cage-free eggs into super markets started mid-1994 when the Humane Society of the United States placed a flyer in major newspapers around the country informing people of the cruelty involved in caged chicken farms, asking readers to demand that their grocers carry cage-free eggs. By virtue of this ad campaign alone, a new market was created. Prior to that, only healthfood stores carried these eggs. That shows us that a public relations campaign is the first thing needed to create evolution in the chicken industry.
#2: A SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ARMwould be required to conduct ongoing research on how to raise healthier, more productive chickens, who lay better eggs cage-free. We want to write a pamphlet describing university-proven methods which we hope to teach. The scientific arm of this group would show chicken farmers how to switch over to the new and preferred method of raising chickens.
Two studies might be assembled: one of chicken farming as it is, the second of how it could be. New, scientific methods can be utilized to get rid of bacterial diseases which are currently so prevalent at chicken farms. Instead of the present chemicals, natural products would be used instead of artificial feeds, organic feeds. Instead of polluted municipality water, purified water. And instead of wire cages where birds are stacked standing on steel wire floors, unable to turn around, asphyxiating from fumes, in close sheds---wide open spaces where they are free to forage for bugs and natural food as well as eat delicious grain. These new methods would reduce suffering in the animals and create a healthier, superior egg. See: The difference between "free range", "cage free" and "pasteure raised" eggs!... An eye opener!
#3 A highly PUBLICIZABLE SPY ARM that Goes into CHICKEN FARMS to check if they're really cage-free as most are NOT: This is the arm that gets you a lot of ink!! A lot of video footage! Seeing IS believing!
#4. TYPISTS who do PUBLIC RELATIONSand press releases. This is required to create public awareness as to what is going on in the chicken/egg industry. Consumer demand will create the new supply of cage-free eggs. Our job is simply to raise the percentage of cage-free vs. caged eggs being sold and to teach the consumer of the different LEVELS. It isn't just caged or cage-free. There are birds in interim conditions of torture. Half tortured, as it were--but currently, under 1/2 % of the eggs sold are cage-free. Through publicity combined with the flyers you give out at parade, and your press conference, we can raise that percentage up to 10% or more the first year.
Since there are about 400 billion days of Aushwitz-like suffering a year for egglayers in the USA only, a 10% rise in the % of eggs from caged to cage-free birds would translate into 50 billion days per year of Auschwitz like incarceration into a happy normal life for the average, industrial bird.
A modern egg farm is not the bucolic, grassy grandma's farm we imagined as children. The eggs we eat come from hellish, tin barracks built around thousands of wire cages stacked on top of each other, longer than football fields, with shelf after shelf made of wire mesh holding birds who have never seen the light of day. It is as if you were confined in an elevator for your entire life. Birds react to this kind of imprisonment by literally going bird-zerk. They peck one another to death, hence breeders cruelly de-beak them at birth.
The public HAS to be made to see that a bird is a sentient being. We are eating products from tortured animals. No wonder cancer in the populace has grown by a factor of l00 times since 1900. What subtle hormones of fear, rage and depression are in them? What is known is that eggs of cage-free, grain fed birds have much LESS saturated fat. They also have the delicious taste which eggs in cage-free France have.
Soon it will become the gourmet thing to serve cage-free cruelty-free eggs. It will be CHIC not to eat eggs from factory birds. And when it's chic to have cage-free eggs onwards to more humane treatment of all animals.
#5 PARTIES & OTHER POSSIBLE IDEAS: a P.R. event to launch this, a CHICKEN BENEFIT, a "SAVE THE LAYERS" televised comedy show with someone caring and improvosational, a hippie comedian you find at LAFF HUT so you can do "BIRDZERK" a Chicken Night at the Comedy Store, an evening of CHICKEN jokes. We will link the concept of non-suffering procurement of eggs to laughter and joy.
College writing classes might be utilized to write/ submit articles for major magazines, photograph small children playing with pet chickens. Speakers could be booked on t.v. talk shows with chicken stories.
We could create a famous PUCK PUCK the CHICKEN 'spokesbird,' to attend sporting events, races talk shows or even super markets as well as the Doodah parade.
We want to do for the BIRD what other activist groups did for baby COWS. Veal is now a dirty word in Beverly Hills. Mink is a dirty word in New York!
Pressure can be put on the super market chains and egg distributors. Let's do what PETA did to stop MINK and SABLE. Fur is a dirty word in all of America. A publicity campaign did the job! Even if someone NEVER gave a hoot about a chicken, they'd find the ad campaign an amusing thing to listen to. It would sensitize people to the plight of chickens who are intelligent, loving birds --with feelings.
To inspire American activists, we can utilize documentary film of Cage-Free farms. In some European countries there there are laws that prevent farmers from mistreating their livestock. We are aiming at legislation like that, laws that enforces humane treatment of farm animals. The new 2015 California CAGE SIZE LAW only gives six inches more space and that's not enough. In the end, though, it's the Consumer in the marketplace that will be the deciding factor. Human Health may be the thing that turns the consumer around. There was a scientific study where a chicken was liberated from one of those drumstick factories. This hen had been shot up with all the anti-biotics that the industry uses for fryers. She was given a rooster friend and laid an egg. The baby was born with multiple birth defects! THESE ARE THE EGGS YOU ARE EATING! And chicken feed is dosed with arsenic and we all have chronic arsenic exposure! Cancer, venous disease. Thank you Pfizer. http://www.motherjones.com/tom-philpott/2011/06/arsenic-chicken-fda-roxarsone-pfizer
So add that to your fight and mention that CHICKEN FEATHERS are ground into the 'feed' so poultry is a good way to get over production of KERATIN which creates baldness and whiteheads.
There are issues galore in chickens these days. Vow that more Scientific studies will be conducted and documented by the P.R. Arm that you create. Or run over and work for existing organizations like the Humane Society of the U.S., PETA.
POSSIBLE FUNDERS- The Hollywood film community gets behind all worthy causes, via benefits and we are located in Los Angeles. CAGE-FREE egg companies will welcome the attention and media spotlight as their egg product would instantly become best-sellers in the marketplace. AVANTI AVIAN ANGELS! LIBERATE THE HEN, our SWEET CHICKEN sisters FROM their crowded prisons.
