By the time domestic turkeys reach a few years old, usually they can no longer carry their own weight and cannot walk. They are prone to heart attacks and other stress conditions due to these modifications and abuse.

It's very sad what humans do to animals to always serve their own ends! It's too bad that we can't genetically modify humans into kinder people! Just think what a different world we would have.

This is so cruel. Thank you for exposing the truth about corporate farming and the dreadful things they do to animals.

The plight of factory-farmed turkeys is one of the reasons that we now support only Heritage Breed turkey farmers. For those who eat meat, the taste is superior, and these birds have not been Genetically modified to be frankenbirds. Plus, traditional factory farmed turkey has been proven to be one of the MOST tainted meat - having a higher level of MRSA than any other. Turkeys are amazingly interesting when allowed to grow and free range naturally, as happens on several nearby farms. Thinking about getting Bourbon Reds for here soon.
