<div class="quote-block"><br>
While employed at a North Carolina turkey hatchery that now supplies Butterball, a COK investigator documented the conditions forced upon newly-hatched chicks. As the investigation video shows, from the moment theyre hatched, these turkeys are submerged into a world of misery. Dumped out of metal trays and jostled onto conveyor belts after being mechanically separated from cracked egg shells, the newly-hatched turkeys are tossed around like inanimate objectsthey are sorted, sexed, de-beaked, de-toed, and in some cases de-snooded before they are packed up and shipped off to a grow out confinement facility.<br><br><br><br>
The video further reveals that not all chicks survive this harsh process. Countless chicks become mangled from the machinery, suffocated in plastic bags, or deemed surplus and dumped (along with injured chicks) into the same disposal system as the discarded egg shells they were separated from hours earlier.<br></div>

So sad.....I was at the grocery store earlier getting some things to make veg. stuffing and cranberries and it just kills me all of those dead turkeys and people picking through them all to find the biggest one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

GODDAMMIT that upsets me so frickin' much! I want to send that video to everyone I know to open their eyes, but I know that most of them just don't want to take the red pill.

I can't even get my wife to watch it. She still eats meat, and she says she doesn't want to know. It's as if she is afraid she won't want to eat meat anymore. It's very frustrating to me....

My mom is the same way. She actually SAYS she likes meat and doesn't want to see that stuff because she wants to keep eating it.

I feel sick just reading about it, cant bring myself to watch the video. If its on youtube hopefully people will watch it. Just awful and I only wish my loved ones would see whats happened to the animals they are eventually eating. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Yes, it's on YouTube, I ran across it yesterday. So very sad. Those turkey chicks are just so cute, I can't believe people can be so cruel to babies.<br><br><br><br>
It reminds me of those Mr. Rogers clips of crayon factories or construction paper factories -- except those weren't crayons spinning and dropping on those machines, they were baby animals! WHY don't people get it?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><br><br><br><br>
I wonder how people would react if they saw the same footage, only it was newborn kittens, not turkey chicks?

My wife is a vegetarian--I can't get her to watch it either. She says it disturbs her too much. I try to empathize but I still dont understand. I'm disturbed by it to--I think that's the whole point. In being disturbed your convictions become strengthened. We all have read about what goes on, but seeing a video just makes it so much more real, less aloof/abstract.

Yeah, that's what my grandmother said! She thinks that if she sees it, she'll never want to eat meat again, and she doesn't want that, because she likes it. Ugh.
