The number of animals being killed and factory farmed goes up when people choose to eat chicken meat.
This is why One Step For Animals advocates for everyone to examine their choices and cut chickens out of their diet. We carefully look at numbers and think about the consequences of our acts.
Take a look at this staggering account published in the Independent:
"The biggest mega-farms house more than a million chickens, 20,000 pigs or 2,000 cattle."
Everyone is welcome to take one step and reduce suffering. Intensive farming is accelerating climate change, driving species loss, emitting damaging slurry and nitrates, and causing large-scale animal suffering. Choosing chicken is not green and it is a cruel choice. It is alas too easy to dismiss this claim of cruelty because “they’re just birds” but this would mean ignoring the increasing amount of scientific evidence that birds think, feel and suffer. For more on this, we suggest this excellent piece from The Atlantic, published in March 2019.
This is the reality of chicken farming in Australia, much like everywhere else: thousands of animals being abused.
It takes more than 200 chickens to produce the same number of meals as one cow. Chickens are typically the most mistreated animals in the industry. Plant-based chicken meat is easy to find in our supermarkets and tastes awesome. Please take ONE STEP for the animals and choose animal friendly options.
