KFC Kids' Corner

Kids' Corner

A KFC bucket of chicken wings translates into a BIG body count. Think about it—every bird has only two wings (if only all math problems were this easy). Each year, more than 850 million chickens are killed by KFC when they are just 6 or 7 weeks old.

Chickens should be friends, not food! Chickens are friendly, curious little birds who value their lives just as much as you value yours. Did you know that chicken moms talk to their chicks even while the babies are still in the shell? When the chicks are born, their mom watches over them carefully, takes them under her wing to keep them safe, and teaches them all about life.

But chickens on Colonel Sanders’ farms never get to be loved by their moms. These birds’ lives are awful and scary even before they are killed and cut up for food.

Chickens raised for KFC are taken away from their families and stuffed into sheds with tens of thousands of other birds. (Think of how scared you’d be if you were locked inside a crowded room with thousands of people you didn’t know!) The birds aren’t allowed any fresh air or sunshine, and they can barely move.

Once they’re fattened up, the birds are thrown into tiny crates and trucked to the slaughterhouse. Some chickens fall off the trucks and are left to die alongside the road. The frightened birds who make it to the slaughterhouse are killed when they are just 6 weeks old—still babies!

You Can Help!

Tell KFC's parent company that until it starts treating birds better, you won't keep quiet about KFC's secret recipe—cruelty to animals. Write:
