Local activist Laila recounting her experience with liberating birds as unique and important as the 200,000 chickens who live out their short brutal lives at Parkwood Eggs in Macgregor ACT.
Save chickens – ditch eggs
200,000 hidden lives: Let’s bring them to light.
In the Belconnen suburb of MacGregor, around 200,000 curious, intelligent hens live out their lives in sorrow-filled, windowless sheds. When these hens reach 18 months old, with egg production dropping, they are sent to slaughter and replaced – with young chickens who are subjected to the same process.
Join us in shining a light on the lives of chickens, and imploring Canberrans to help end the harm and exploitation of chickens by choosing not to consume eggs or any animal products at a candle-lit vigil held by Vegan ACT & Animal Liberation ACT on Saturday the 4th of November.
