Laboring under the misapprehension that chickens are equal to humans, the wing-and-drumstick nannies at United Poultry Concerns (UPC) have decided to take on Colonel Sanders.
Holding signs reading “Chickens have feelings” and “Death row: chickens being hung,” UPC activists were out in full force recently in Lanham, Maryland (a Washington, DC suburb). When a reporter from the Montgomery County (MD) Gazette praised the protesters for staying put during a downpour, UPC’s Franklin Wade replied: “It’s interesting its raining today because the chickens inside would love to just get to go outside and see the rain.” United Poultry Concerns is led by “chicken lady” Karen Davis, who keeps over 100 chickens and ducks as household pets.
