Put an end to the 'Living Eggs Project'

      Romford, United Kingdom

We, the undersigned, hereby call upon the UK Government and the Scottish Assembly to bring an immediate end to "The Living Eggs Project"* (and any other similar private enterprises) in state education establishments. This is for the following reasons:
1. the Project represents the exploitation of animals for profit, with no concern for their welfare interests
2. many of the chicks born as a result of the Project suffer serious adverse welfare consequences, including abandonment and death
3. it gives school children a false view of the value of animal lives, and which fails to address the importance of providing for their welfare interests long-term and not just for the brief period of a school project

* "The Living Eggs Project" is a for-profit private enterprise which sells 'incubation kits' (with fertilised eggs) to state schools for chicks to be born in the classroom environment for a brief project on 'the miracle of life'

      Only teachers trained to care for livestock should be doing this otherwise the animals mY have the wrong care and may suffer and that is then passed on to the children - bad education

      schools don't keep the chicks and give them away or kill them after the projects finished, they should be made to look after them till the hens/cockerils die of old age

      This fails to teach youngsters about taking long term responsibility for their charges, and results in thousands of unwanted cockerels every year.
