Facebook Game for Chickens

A new game on Facebook provides information on battery cages.

Mark Middleton of AnimalVisuals.org, a website that uses multimedia to advocate for animals, has developed a new Facebook game that aims to inform players on the plights of chickens. The game, titled Farm Rescue, involves rescuing virtual chickens from battery cages and nurturing them back to health through facilitating perching, nesting and exercising. Furthermore, the game provides links for players to help the plight of actual chickens, such as adopting an animal from Farm Sanctuary or cooking without eggs with recipes from chooseveg.com. Through playing the game and users sharing it with friends, Middleton hopes to use the interactive-media platform to spread the word of factory-farm abuse of chickens.
