Help “Easter” Chicks

Even though we live in what we considered a civilized society, the way the chicks are treated is a far cry from civilization. Today’s hens are “egg-laying machines” who live miserable short lives. Their babies are born in incubators, away from their mother’s warmth and protection. The surviving babies are then sold during Easter and Spring time at feed stores where they are exposed to thirst, starvation, abuse, noise, fear, etc.

Many people buy chicks for children at Easter without realizing that these babies need care and protection, and that most of them will live short, miserable lives at the hands of children who cannot properly care for them and who lose interest in these “toys” very quickly.

Please visit Please Help "Easter" Chicks  to learn how you can help:
Jesus compared his love for us to a hen’s love for her chicks (Luke 13:34). Mother hens have been endowed by our Creator with a strong maternal instinct that yearns to protect and care for their offspring.  To deny these hens and chicks their right to be together is to deny God’s love for them.
