My Life as a Turkey

A fascinating glimpse into the lives of animals who are often seen as little more than Thanksgiving centerpieces. The film follows Joe Hutto as he raises 16 turkeys, left on his porch as eggs, from hatchlings to adulthood.

Turkeys on factory farms will be killed when they are only 5 or 6 months old and, during their short lives, will be denied even the simplest pleasures, such as running, building nests, raising their young or even stepping outdoors. Turkeys raised for food will never know the comfort of their mother’s wings or experience the joy of exploring the woods and fields with her.

Each of us can help prevent the needless suffering of turkeys by leaving them, and all animals, off our plates! This holiday season, join the growing number of Americans that are choosing to celebrate by serving delicious vegan fare.
