The Sad Truth

The sad truth is, no matter what the schools or ‘Living Eggs’ say about the welfare of their chicks, there are still very real concerns and some schools are not bothering about the long term welfare of the chicks.

This was sent to me yesterday by a concerned person

“A teaching assistant in a Lincoln school has had to take home all the hatched chicks from a ‘living egg’ project. The school didn’t give a stuff about what happened to the hatched chicks when the project had finished.
She has homed the hens but left with 3 cockerels, 2 of which are picking on one. In Brighton we are are working with our council to stop schools running this sick, stupid project, which teaches children that animals are a classroom resource.”

Unfortunately the cockerels are always difficult to rehome, no one wants them.

The new school year has started and we must redouble our efforts to get this ‘project’ stopped.  Please contact me if you would like some leaflets to give to your childs school or any schools in your area and also please send me your experiences of the ‘Living Eggs Project;’  Remember ‘Living Eggs – Dead Chicks’
