PETA ‘Hens’ to Put Free Vegan ‘Easter Eggs’ in Your Mouth

Des Moines, Iowa – With Easter ahead and avian flu outbreaks causing egg shortages and skyrocketing prices, PETA supporters in chicken costumes will flock to the top egg-producing state in the country on Wednesday to give away samples of the new vegan hard-boiled WunderEggs along with cooking and baking recipes and vegan starter kits. They’ll also offer food for thought about why, even at Easter—a time to show mercy to others—hens in the egg industry are crammed into tiny wire cages and then slaughtered when their egg production slows.

When:    Wednesday, April 5, 12 noon

Where:    At the intersection of Court Avenue and Fourth Street, Des Moines

“Easter eggs are on our minds, so this is the perfect time to kick-start year-round kindness to hens by indulging in fluffy egg-free omelets, scrambles, and more,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA urges anyone concerned about avian flu outbreaks to try the many varieties of vegan eggs, which are nutritious and delicious and never spread deadly viruses.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
