Ask The Chicken Farmers of Canada to stop the use of cruel genetic manipulation.

To: Chicken Farmers of Canada,

I am a caring Canadian who believes fast-growth genetics for chickens raised for meat are cruel and inhumane. Chickens bred for fast-growth cause the birds immense suffering. In addition to an extremely short lifespan of just 33 - 35 days, fast growth genetics cause:

● their bones to break
● their legs to collapse under their own weight
● heart failure and death

Moreover, these birds are kept in crowded, dark conditions that cause stress, ammonia and litter burns. Once they reach slaughter weight, their transport and slaughter result in further suffering from rough handling and outdated slaughter techniques.

I am one of many who believe these extreme practices need to stop. Please require your meat chicken suppliers to:

● Phase out fast growth genetics, and replace with slower growing strains of birds
● Provide birds with more space and enrichment such as hay bales
● Replace the electrified-water stun bath system with an improved system such as Controlled Atmosphere Stunning
● Add video auditing to slaughter plants
● Adopt the RSPCA or Global Animal Partnership standard for chickens, with enrichment for birds, with windows for natural light, hay bales, etc.

Ask Egg Farmers of Canada to end practices cruel to animals.

Dear Egg Farmers of Canada,

I am a caring Canadian who believes current practices for egg-laying hens are cruel and inhumane.

Hens should be:
  • kept in loose housing, not cramped battery cages where they peck each other and lose their feathers
  • allowed to nest, perch, dust-bathe and spread their wings
  • transported in mechanically-ventilated trucks that protect them from cold and hot weather
  • slaughtered using more humane, less painful controlled atmosphere killing (CAK)
These are basic welfare needs, and I am one of many people who believe laying hens deserve better. Please end these cruel practices.

3 Eat More Plant-Based Foods

Choose vegetarian/vegan meals more often.
Grocery stores have more meat-free alternatives than ever.

Reducing animal products reduces suffering! It also happens to be great for you and for the environment.

Some common brands that make great faux-chicken:

Try a few different things, and you're sure to find something you like. It's also easy to make healthy seitan at home, from wheat gluten flour. Seitan has more protein than meat, minus unhealthy animal fats.

You are not alone. More people than ever are interested in alternatives to meat:

Google searches on veganism have trippled between 2005 and 2015, as more and more people are learning about meat-free living.
Google, 2015.

About 1 in 3 Canadians, or 12 million people, are trying to eat less meat or are vegetarian. 12% of all 18-34 year olds are fully or mostly vegetarian.
Vancouver Humane Society, 2015.

More than 50% of Canadians are open to reducing their overall meat consumption and eating less meat when eating out.
Vegetarian Resource Group, 2010, and others.
