Today – the first day of April – PETA is proud to
present a brand-new groundbreaking technology that could save lives.
We all know that some birds can learn to speak human
languages, but now humans are finally learning to understand birds' language! A
team of engineers and avian biologists has created a revolutionary new
instrument that interprets chickens' speech patterns and translates them into English.
The translator can be attached to a chicken via a Velcro band, and when
the chicken clucks, the device interprets the sounds and a mechanised voice
speaks the English translation.
People are flocking to get the tiny devices, and PETA
India managed to get a few thousand of them, which we will be sending to chicken farmers across the
country. We're hopeful that
people will stop running afoul of fowl when they can actually understand what these
inquisitive animals are saying when they speak
lovingly to their avian friends and family, demonstrate their excellent
memories by asking about chickens who have disappeared (and were likely taken to slaughter) and perform complex
We're excited to hear back from farmers about what
chickens have been saying to them. "I want to go outside", perhaps?
Or "Where are you taking my sister?" We have a feeling that some
farmers are going to have a lot of explaining to do.
We'll keep you updated on how the project is going.
What do you think farmers will soon be hearing chickens say?
