Celebrating Easter with vegan chocolate eggs and other treats is fun for everyone – 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 cramped sheds and bred to lay an unnatural number of eggs, day after day. On dairy farms, cows are repeatedly, forcibly impregnated and never get to keep their babies. The short, miserable lives of both hens and cows end in an abattoir.
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 that chickens use more than 24 unique vocalisations to communicate, each of which has a distinct meaning, such as warning their companions about different types of predators. Unhatched chicks even chirp to their mothers from inside the egg. Chickens are fascinating animals!
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 cows’ milk and where it really comes from.
Just like all other 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?
