Ducks Out of Water
 Watch Video
 
 

 

Britain’s favourite wild bird has joined the ranks of the factory farmed animal machines. They have been forced out of the ponds and riversides and crammed in their thousands into dirty, stinking sheds – their every natural instinct frustrated.

Animals that have evolved to eat, swim, dive, clean and play in water are denied it entirely except for drinking. Without water, ducks can’t preen, their feathers deteriorate and they can lose body heat. They may also develop eye problems and even blindness. Able to live for 10 years, they are killed after seven weeks.”

Find out more about Viva!’s fight to get Britain’s favourite bird out of the factory farm and back on the pond!
