Elementary School Ends Chick-Hatching Projects!
In September 2018, In Defense of Animals announced: Thanks to your calls and letters, Bacich Elementary School in Kentfield, California has officially ended its chick-hatching program! We are thrilled with the principal’s compassionate decision. Your participation made a real difference and spared the lives of innocent chicks.
The teacher involved in the project was eager for humane alternatives. We applaud Bacich Elementary School!
With your help, other schools can follow this school’s lead. If you know any teachers who participate in chick-hatching projects, please let us know and direct them to Hatching Good Lessons: Alternatives to School Hatching Projects by United Poultry Concerns, available at www.upc-online.org/hatching.
