50 Ways To Protect Gamefowl & Poultry

I would like to precede the following article by giving credit to the man who’s writing inspired me to write this entry. Earlier today, I was reading the blog of Wayne Pacelle and realized that what he was writing, could in many ways be beneficial to the gamefowl community if it were viewed properly.

I have, on many occasions, stated that too many gamefowl enthusiasts provide our enemies with ammunition to use against us. I frequently contemplate this, and wonder why it is so. It was after reading the above mentioned blog on the HSUS website that I realized that in many occasions, we can do just as they do, which is to use their information to further our own cause. In the following paragraphs I will demonstrate to you how this can be done.

For the following, very much of the information from Mr. Pacelle’s blog will be used. I openly admit that many of the below statements will be quoted from the above named page, and in some cases, I will provide links directly to HSUS pages that can be used to further our cause without any translation. It is through this post that I hope to introduce many to my way of thinking that the enemy can provide us with ammunition if we know where to find it.

Ways to protect poultry, and the gamefowl community from animal rights activists.

In Your Community:

Personal Behavior:

  • Eat what you want without worrying about what someone else might think. If you enjoy eating meat, then do so. If you prefer a vegetarian diet, then that is your right as well.
  • Do not use cruelty free cosmetics and household products.  Only patronize companies who dare to make a stand against the animal rights terrorists.
  • Adopt an animal that is due to be murdered by an animal shelter or humane society.
  • Report to your state Department of Fish and Wildlife any problems that you have with wildlife destroying your property or killing your livestock so that they will see the need for control of wildlife.
  • I.D. your animals and encourage others to do the same. If your animals are not identified they may be impounded by animal control officers and turned over to the local humane society, or PETA. Many animals who wind up in the hands of these agencies become the victims of murder, or suffer the loss of their reproductive organs.
  • Keep your hunting dogs safe indoors, where animal rights activists cannot steal them.
  • Prepare a will to bequeath your fowl to a fellow enthusiast to make sure that they don’t wind up in the hands of PETA or the HSUS.
  • Prepare a disaster kit for your fowl. This kit should contain at least one gas mask per chicken so that their chances of surviving the HSUS gas chamber will be improved.
  • Distribute the petition to revoke the non-profit status of the HSUS.
  • Ask your local restaurants and grocery stores to sell farm fresh eggs from a local producer.
  • Visit this blog regularly.
  • Add links and banners for pro-poultry and anti-animal rights websites to your website, blog, or social networking page.
  • Sign up to receive newsletters from The Center for Consumer Freedom.

Get Training – Get Activated:

  • Study about diseases of fowl and how to combat them.
  • Encourage local veterinarians to learn as much as possible about care of poultry and ask them to speak to your local poultry club, or state GBA.
  • Help a beginner learn about poultry and gamefowl.  If you are a beginner yourself, share what information you have learned.
  • Attend as many meetings of the UGBA or your state GBA as possible.
  • Do online research and learn about the fraudulent tactics of the HSUS so that you may share the information with others before they are duped into supporting such an organization.
  • Organize a poultry club in your community.

Volunteer To Help Animals:

  • Monitor your property for trespassing animal rights activists who might mean to do your fowl harm.
  • Volunteer to help an injured, elderly, or ill poultry farmer tend his flock.
  • Volunteer your time and skills to help the poultry/gamefowl community.
  • Volunteer at the UGBA annual meeting or other event.
  • Hold a benefit auction and encourage others to do so and see that proceeds go to an organization who has our interests in mind.

Political Activities:

  • Determine which elected officials represent you at the local, state, and federal levels.
  • Contact your federal and state legislators about animal protection laws which may violate your civil rights.
  • Consult the Humane Scorecard to determine how your members of congress perform on animal issues.
  • Contact the UGBA and offer to help pass legislation in our favor, or block legislation that is against us.
  • Attend your lawmakers’ town meetings and urge them to protect your rights as a livestock producer.
  • Register to vote.
  • Gather signatures for any petitions that may further our cause.

Work With Local Schools:

  • Work to block the adoption of HSUS propaganda in local classrooms.
  • Educate parents about the true nature of most animal rights organizations and urge them to refuse to allow their children to be recruited to these immoral groups through the schools.
  • Educate young people who have fallen victim to the lies and have been drawn into the influence of people like JP Goodwin
  • Work to prevent schools from allowing PETA representatives from contacting your children
  • Work to have your local schools banned from allowing criminal organizations from influencing your children.

Boycott HSUS Sponsors:

Fundraising and Networking:

  • Make an annual gift or monthly pledge to the CCF
  • Hold a memorial poultry show in the name of a friend or favorite broodfowl.
  • Give gift subscriptions to the gamefowl journals to friends and family members.
  • Host a house party and ask an accomplished breeder to speak at it.
  • Hold an event to raise awareness for the poultry community.
  • Arrange coffee or lunch dates to expose the truth about the HSUS & PETA to people who care about animals.
  • Ensure that the HSUS loses it’s eligibility for tax exempt status.
  • Donate a trio to your local GBA charity auction.

I am well aware that some of the above ideas were mentioned more than once, and some were comedic. The point is to show you how we can use their words against them in the same way that they have used our words against us.

These are my suggestions and I am Darren U. Talissen

Be as game as your roosters, and keep fighting the good fight.
