- They are angry with me because I know what I am.” Said the little eagle. “How do you know that they are angry with you?” “Because they despise me for wanting to soar, they only want me to peck at the dirt, looking for ants, with them. But I can’t do that. I don’t have chicken feet. I have eagle wings.” “And what is so wrong with having eagle wings and no chicken feet?” Asked the old owl. “I’m not sure. That’s what I’m trying to find out.” “They hate you because you know that you are an eagle, and they want you to think you are a chicken so that you will peck at the ground looking for ants and worms so that you will never know that you are an eagle and always think yourself a chicken. Let them hate you, they will always be chickens, and you will always be an eagle. You must fly. You must soar.” Said the old owl.

- “I am a battery hen. I live in a cage so small I cannot stretch my wings. I am forced to stand night and day on a sloping wire mesh floor that painfully cuts into my feet. The cage walls tear my feathers, forming blood blisters that never heal. The air is so full of ammonia that my lungs hurt, my eyes burn, and I think I am going blind. As soon as I was born, a man grabbed me and sheared off part of my beak with a hot iron, and my little brothers were thrown into trash bags as useless alive.”
- “My mind is alert, and my body is sensitive, and I should have been richly feathered. In nature or even a farmyard, I would have had sociable, cleansing dust baths with my flock mates, a need so strong that I perform ‘vacuum’ dust bathing on the wire floor of my cage. Free, I would have ranged my ancestral jungles and fields with my mates, devouring plants, earthworms, and insects from sunrise to dusk. I would have exercised my body and expressed my nature, and I would have given and received, pleasure as a whole being. I am only a year old, but I am already a ‘spent hen.’ Humans, I wish I were dead, and soon I will be dead. Look for pieces of my wounded flesh wherever chicken pies and soups are sold.”
– Karen Davis
- “More laying hens are slaughtered in the United States than cattle or pigs. Commercial laying hens are not bred for their flesh, but when their economic utility is over, the still-young birds are trucked to the slaughterhouse and turned into meat products. In the process, they are treated even more brutally than meat-type chickens because of their low market value. Their bones are very fragile from lack of exercise and calcium depletion for heavy egg production, causing fragments to stick to the flesh during processing. The starvation practice is known as forced molting results in beaded ribs that break easily at the slaughterhouse. Removal of food for several days before the hens are loaded onto the truck weakens their bones even more.”
– Karen Davis.
- “I grew up in a farming family. I hated cleaning out the chickens but loved hatching them and feeding the newborn sheep. The smell of hot milk still has a special resonance for me. Harvest was back-breaking work, though… Where do you think Jesus got his biceps from? “
– Joseph Mawle
- “If you dream of becoming an eagle, you follow your dreams and not the words of a bunch of chickens”
– Penny Johnson Jerald
- “Charles Darwin was convinced from his studies that the red jungle fowl was the only ancestor of the domestic chicken.”

– Joseph Barbera
- “Cockerel is often used to describe an immature male chicken, a male less than one year of age or a male of any age”
– Joseph Barbera
- “Healthiness of chicken could be traced to the way it is cooked”
– Aaron Katherine

– Christine Heinrichs
- “The chicken is gone, but you can still smell it. But, it’s nothing like it was”
– James Reed
