10 Reasons Not to Eat Nuggets

Posted August 9, 2011 by peta2 staff

Chickens are social birds who live together in flocks, often sharing food and nests. They are curious, interesting, and as smart as cats, dogs, and even some primates. Yet, in the United States alone, more than 7 billion chickens are killed for their flesh each year, and 452 million hens are used for their eggs. On factory farms, baby chickens are never even allowed contact with their parents!

The next time that you think about ordering chicken nuggets, remember the precious photos below and consider that if chicks could speak, each one would probably cry out, “I am not a nugget!”

Ready to leave chickens off your plate? Go vegan! Psst, there are tons of tasty faux chicken products available everywhere!

    I LLOOOVVEEE chickens. We have chickens and ducks(we use them for bug and snake control) and I love seeing the new chickies and duckies hatching all the time. It is truly miraculous to watch them hatch after all the waiting.

    I see this and then I look at my chickens and think, ‘how can people be so stupid to eat such adorable creatures?’ They are very smart and adorable. 😀

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
