Raising awareness for birds such as chickens, ducks and turkeys is so important. These animals have an emotionally rich life. And, birds, including birds such as chickens, ducks and turkeys have found to be very intelligent.
Chickens and ducks are the two most exploited land animals, they are the animals which are killed most for humans to eat. While Turkeys and Geese are at sixth and seventh. While other birds are 12th.
You can see here how often animals are killed: http://www.adaptt.org/killcounter.html
Birds are far more exploited than sea creatures, mammals and any other type of animals. They are the most exploited, abused and killed animal on the planet, on land.
There is no such thing as humane bird farming, or organic chickens and ducks. Humane and slaughter cannot go hand-in-hand, slaughter is never humane. And, organic farming, or free range as it is often called, is largely a myth.
Free range doesn't exist. It rarely is birds outside in green pastures. Instead, humane meat comes from birds which are still inside, they are just not locked in cages.
This treatment of birds such as chickens, ducks and turkeys, is miles away from the attitudes that we have about wild birds.
When it comes to killing or eating birds, there is nothing humane or organic about it. Here are five reasons why you should go vegan and save the bird!
Because the birds get to live. We are not the only animal which wants to live. Other animals do to. Including birds. We do not have a right to take away their life.
These animals are neglected. They live in tiny cages and do not have a good quality of life. They do not fulfill their emotional or psychological needs locked up.
Abuse is rampant in the food industry. This includes birds. If someone has the mentality to kill a bird, they also have the mentality to abuse it. The best way to avoid this, is to go meat and dairy free.
You're living a compassionate life, but you are also encouraging others to be compassionate. And, you are raising awareness about the abuse and injustice that these birds face.
Not eating meat or dairy is a lot better for the planet. You stop polluting the planet and you stop the destruction of natural lands, by going green.
