Photos: PETA ‘Chicks’ Pass Out Free … Eggs?!

They’re Vegan, of Course! Egg Shortage Prompts Local Giveaway During ‘Veganuary’

Lincoln – Today, as the bird flu outbreak is decimating the egg supply, PETA supporters dressed in yellow unitards and Venetian-style hen masks flocked to Lincoln High Street to hand out free vegan eggs from OGGS, which recently won a PETA Vegan Food Award for its Scrambled OGGS. The costumed chicks pointed out that no chicken eggs is no problem, especially during “Veganuary”, as vegan eggs are in plentiful supply, kind to birds, and better for humans’ health – and choosing them helps prevent the spread of zoonotic disease.

“For cluck’s sake, nothing is less appetising than the threat of bird flu and the thought of sick, injured birds crammed into filthy sheds,” says PETA Senior Campaigns Manager Kate Werner. “PETA is encouraging everyone to dig into fluffy OGGS and other eggstraordinary vegan eggs that leave birds in peace.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview – offers a free vegan starter kit on its website. For more information, please visit PETA’s website or follow the group on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
