For the young turkey chicks, life in the farm is similar to the picture shown above. Cramped, crowded and living in their own shit, literally! They are debeaked, have their talons removed, and subjected to a lot of torture before they are slaughtered. Animal activists who went to a turkey farm in Alberta, Canada even found that the farmers burnt sick turkeys alive to ‘get rid’ of them.

Living, learning and inspiring, one quarter mile at a time.
