Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Mo
7th June 2012
The recent arrival of Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Mo, four sweet little chicks comes with a big message – say ‘no to chicken hatching projects’. Little Eeny has a deformed beak and will need special care to ensure she gets enough food to keep her well nourished. Tiny chicks like Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Mo have special needs while they develop their adult insulating feathers and become better able to fend for themselves. Unable to defend themselves from larger predators chicks are most vulnerable and not everyone is knowledgeable enough or prepared to cater for their special needs. We humans bring these animals into this world, this should come with duties to them as well. The first being good stewards of their care.
The kindness factor
- Be their voice, say no to chicken hatching projects. Sign an online petition or contact us for postcard to send to decision makers asking them to hatch better ideas.
- Encourage teachers and friends to adopt activities that appreciate the lives of animals not trivialise them. Organise a field trip to a wetland or animal sanctuary.
- Volunteer at Edgar’s Mission and help ensure creatures like Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Mo have a life worth living.
