International Respect for Chickens Month

May 4 is International Respect for Chickens Day and the whole month is International Respect for Chickens Month.

Could be fun to weave this in to a service, including Biblical references like “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Luke 13:34

When a mother hen feels threatened she takes action to protect her chicks. She will gather them under her wings and protect them with her body. She is willing to offer herself up as a sacrifice in the hopes that her babies will go unnoticed and remain unharmed. 

Could be interesting to weave in themes like sustainability/Meat free Mondays etc.
