And please visit the permanent Uncooped Museum online at www.uncooped.org. This permanent collection includes photographs, illustrations, paintings,
essays, interviews, videos, artifacts, and campaign materials capturing the many ways in which chickens have been perceived and treated by humans, how they
have suffered and died and recovered and rejoiced and been loved, cherished, honored, tortured, murdered, maligned and advocated for from the past to the
present. Uncooped was inspired by UPC’s International Respect for Chickens Day May 4/Month of May. Click here for ideas about what you can do
to advocate for chickens in May 2014. – Karen Davis, President of United Poultry Concerns, proud underwriter of Uncooped: Deconstructing the Domesticated Chicken!
