Send a strong message to key officials in the House and Senate Committee on Agriculture, as well as other key officials with leadership on similar issues.

Currently birds are not protected under the federal Animal Welfare Act, nor the Humane Slaughter Act.

      Since I have had my 3 silkie chickens I have not eaten chickens since. If you ever get pet chickens you might fall in love with one. Just please have kindness in your heart to stop slaughtering these poor chickens. Yes I know people eat chicken at least wait until they die themseleves and then do whatever you want with them.
