Fast Fact Friday: Turkey-less Thanksgiving

You know I don't usually harp upon animal rights or the killing of animals. But, after a delightful animal-free Thanksgiving dinner (which I will post about next week), I thought I would provide a quick nod to the birds of the holiday. An estimated 46 million turkeys gave their lives for Thanksgiving dinner, and most of those are kept in over-crowded conditions, bred for larger breast meat than any bird found in nature. And turkey always seems to be the focus of the holiday.
