Join Healthy Planet's
Bob DiBenedetto for an interview with author,
and longtime President of the United Poultry Concerns, Karen Davis, PhD.
We'll be discussing the little known facts about the birds who are mostly thought of as options on breakfast, lunch and dinner menus -- chickens and
turkeys. The poultry industry generally portrays these creatures as distinctly unlike the cats, dogs and other animals (who most think of as family) and
therefore, not deserving of consideration. But is that an accurate depiction of these birds? Or are they capable of forming relationships (even with
humans) and social structures, experiencing a wide range of emotions, answering to their names, anticipating pleasure and much more?
Karen Davis, PhD, is uniquely qualified to answer these questions, and to reveal the facts about poultry that can only come from in-depth study,
observation, and the forming of relationships with individual birds over the course of many years. She’s the Founder and President of United Poultry
Concerns, a nonprofit organization that promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl including a sanctuary for chickens in
Virginia. Author of numerous books, articles and op-eds, in 2002 Karen was inducted into the National Animal Rights Hall of Fame for Outstanding
Contributions to Animal Liberation.
