Celebrating Easter with vegan treats is fun for everyone involved – and making the compassionate choice to avoid dairy and eggs spares animals immense suffering. Hens exploited by the egg industry are forced to live in horrific conditions and bred to lay an unnatural number of eggs, day after day, until they’re sent to slaughter. On dairy farms, cows are forcibly impregnated time and time again, and they never get to keep their babies.
Chickens have unique personalities, love to play, and will run, jump, and sunbathe when given the chance. They are inquisitive and clever and make excellent parents. Humans have identified more than 24 unique vocalisations that they use to communicate, each of which has a distinct meaning, such as warning their companions about different types of predators. Unhatched chicks even cheep to their mothers from inside the egg. Chickens are fascinating!
Cows are gentle, intelligent, social animals, and each individual has their own distinctive moo that they use to express emotions like excitement or stress to their companions. A herd of cows has its own social structure and leaders. Find out more about the hidden lives of cows.
Just like all animals, chickens and cows deserve to live free from abuse and suffering at Easter – and all year round. To do even more to help animals over Easter, why not order copies of PETA’s free vegan starter kit for your loved ones or nudge them to take our 30-day vegan pledge?
