Following the news that egg seller Cal-Maine Foods Inc. killed over 1.6 million chickens at a Parmer County facility on Tuesday due to a bird flu outbreak, PETA supporters will flock to Klyde Warren Park today to give away samples of the vegan hard-boiled WunderEggs along with free vegan starter kits. The group will be dishing out food for thought about why, even amid outbreaks of zoonotic diseases that threaten to spark the next global pandemic, the egg industry continues to pack chickens into filthy, severely crowded, windowless sheds that are perfect breeding grounds for a host of deadly pathogens that can easily mutate and spread to humans.

“Disease, misery, and death flourish at these factories of filth, which pack chickens in by the thousands and treat them like egg-producing machines,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA urges anyone concerned about avian flu outbreaks to try nutritious and delicious vegan eggs, which never spread deadly viruses.”

PETA—whose motto reads in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—points out that Every Animal Is Someone and offers free Empathy Kits for people who need a lesson in kindness. For more information, please visit or follow the group on X, Facebook, or Instagram.
