Vegan Chicken Options to Eat Instead of Birds

As Australia faces a shortage of chicken flesh due to COVID-19, there has never been a better time to try vegan chicken options.

Chickens are arguably the most abused animals on the planet. A  PETA exposé of Australia’s largest chicken producer – which slaughters around 35% of chickens raised for meat in Australia, including Steggles and Lilydale “free-range” birds – found widespread cruelty in its breeding facility and abattoir.

Thankfully, there are more and more vegan chicken options showing up in supermarkets nationwide. Whether you’re craving “wings”, nuggets, or a patty, these vegan versions will tickle your taste buds – without any of the cruelty.

With such a huge variety of vegan chicken options available, why would anyone want to kill and eat these inquisitive, intelligent animals? In nature, chickens form friendships and social hierarchies, recognise one another, love and care for their young, and enjoy taking dust baths and making nests. Those raised for their flesh are denied opportunities for expressing these natural types of behaviour and subjected to a great deal of unnecessary suffering.

If we can live happily and healthily without harming chickens, why wouldn’t we?
