Did you know that millions of chickens are killed by McDonald's suppliers each year in the U.S.? Did you know that the methods that they use are outdated and cause chickens a great deal of suffering? McDonald's has the responsibility—and the ability—to reduce this abuse by demanding that its suppliers use a less cruel slaughter method.
In the slaughterhouses of McDonald's U.S. chicken suppliers, birds are dumped out of their transport crates and hung upside down by their feet in metal shackles, which can result in broken bones and extreme bruising. In addition, many birds are immersed in tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain.
You can help save chickens by printing out this cute Nugget and letter to McDonald's:
In the speech bubble, write your own message to McDonald's—for example, you could write "I Am Not a Nugget," "McCruelty Stinks," or "Help Me!" But be as creative as you'd like (just keep it polite!). When you're done, sign your name to the bottom of the letter. Then mail your Nugget and letter to McDonald's. You'll find the address at the bottom of the letter.

Thanks for taking the time to help chickens!
