De­mand that your turkey lived well

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

AS WE en­ter the party sea­son and start in­dulging in all man­ner of fes­tive food de­lights, I ask your read­ers to spare a thought for the an­i­mals – in­clud­ing the mil­lions of tur­keys – farmed for our Christ­mas din­ners ev­ery year.

Most peo­ple will prob­a­bly be shocked to know the majority of tur­keys we buy come from farms where they are kept in crowded con­di­tions, with­out enough space to move around and ex­er­cise prop­erly.

Tur­keys are in­tel­li­gent birds and they need things to keep them ac­tive and en­gaged, such as ob­jects to peck at and perch on, and plenty of space to ex­er­cise and stretch their wings.
