Baby birds like Avery have their sensitive beaks burned off the moment they are born. Many are left permanently deformed.
Mutilation and stress cause millions of birds to simply stop eating. They are trampled to death after they collapse. The industry has a term for this: "starveout."
Weak birds will have their throats snapped - punishment for not growing fast enough. But even those who survive, including Avery, will be killed.
With emergency veterinary care and careful 24/7 nursing, Avery is on her road to a full recovery. But there are countless more birds just like Avery being hurt by Whole Foods. Take action now!
