November is Love Your Turkey month

November is Love Your Turkey Month! How will you show your love for these amazing birds?VegForTurkeys supports awareness and promotion of turkeys as a species, as opposed to a meal option. Sharing information about their social and emotional lives, cognition, and conditions living on turkey farms are our goals.How can you help? You can start by spreading the word.Share scientific articles about turkey’s social habits, emotional needs, and amazing cognitive abilities.Spread the word that “free-range” and “organic” farm conditions are still inhumane and torturous. Many don’t know that baby turkeys’ beaks are surgically altered, that most turkeys don’t live past 4 months of age, and that many birds are stunted mentally and emotionally due to overcrowding. The anxiety and fright that these birds endure is extremely cruel and certainly unnecessary. We can prevent it.Write your thoughts about what you can do, or what you are doing, to improve living conditions for turkeys and to help save more turkey (and other animal) lives.Recommend great books on factory farming and animal rights.Post away here!Thank you for your love of the turkeys.

Over at VegForTurkeys, a new Tumblr blog dedicated to promoting awareness about turkeys, readers are allowed to share their own turkey love posts. I can’t wait to see all of the submissions and the future for VFT.

How can you help? You can start by spreading the word.

  • Share scientific articles about turkey’s social habits, emotional needs, and amazing cognitive abilities.
  • Spread the word that “free-range” and “organic” farm conditions are still inhumane and torturous. Many don’t know that baby turkeys’ beaks are surgically altered, that most turkeys don’t live past 4 months of age, and that many birds are stunted mentally and emotionally due to overcrowding. The anxiety and fright that these birds endure is extremely cruel and certainly unnecessary. We can prevent it.
  • Write your thoughts about what you can do, or what you are doing, to improve living conditions for turkeys and to help save more turkey (and other animal) lives.
  • Recommend great books on factory farming and animal rights.
  • Post away here!

    Head over and add your own post dedicated to the turkeys. I’m hoping to collect some beautiful photos next time I visit the farm.
