In 1999, Viva! were the first to expose the appealing conditions of duck factory farming in the UK. More than 20 years later and Viva! Campaigns’ latest investigation reveals little has changed.
Field Farm produces Quack! Duck Eggs, sold in Lincolnshire Co-op and distributed by egg giants, Stonegate and Noble Foods. Our investigation reveals thousands of ducks are forced to live on decaying excreta and their only access to water is from dirty bell drinkers – no swimming or cleaning; cruelly robbed of their natural behaviour.
Footage from hidden cameras captured workers brutally killing ducks by dislocating their necks – shockingly a legal practice – and leaving lame, sick and blind birds to suffer in pain. Birds are filmed as they struggled to walk, using their wings to slide along the sodden floor of the filthy barns.
Help us take action against this suffering by drop-dropping our A6 leaflet in your local area. Let’s end factory farming, before it ends us.
Viva!’s fight is a fight for life – for animals and ourselves. Through effective campaigning, we take the brutal reality of intensive farming to the people who can effect the most change: consumers. Our wide-ranging campaigns promote veganism as the best way to save animals from suffering, protect the environment, improve health and help those in developing countries.
We have cleared most shelves of so-called ‘exotic meats’; our campaign against factory farming of pigs, turkeys and ducks aw deaths dive; we are closer than ever to a foie-gras free Britain and meat and dairy consumption are down in the UK thanks to Viva! and you. Viva! is a registered charity (1037486).
