Why have a

Kinder Christmas?

For me! For me! For me! For me! For me!

For Turkeys

Wondering how a turkey is feeling? You might be able to tell from the colour of his head and throat — they change according to mood! Turkeys also form strong social bonds, sometimes travelling in the wild with groups of 200 or more. A wild turkey’s home territory often exceeds 1,000 acres, and they can fly at up to 89 km per hour. Sadly, turkeys in factory farms are confined to sheds, and are bred for such enormous 'breast' growth that they can't even mate naturally.

For Pigs

Pigs are some of the most intelligent and sensitive animals on earth. They can learn their own name, play 'fetch' and will seek out and show affection just like the family dog. Oh, and they LOVE belly rubs! So it’s sad to learn that most pigs in Australia — especially the ones who become 'Christmas hams' — live miserable lives in factory farms, where they can’t do anything that makes a pig’s life worth living.

For Chickens

These smart and curious creatures are anything but 'birdbrains'. Chickens thrive in a complex social world, recognising faces and learning from their experiences. They can 'talk' to each other with dozens of distinct sounds -- and a mother hen will even cluck to her chicks before they hatch so they recognise her voice. Each chicken is an individual, with her own likes, dislikes and favourite pastimes, so a restricted life in a factory farm is seriously awful for them.

For Marine Animals

The magnificent, often mysterious residents of the oceans are just as deserving of compassion as our more ‘cuddly’ animal friends. Some fish species have been found to have long memories, to recognise individuals, and even to warn others of dangers such as fishing trawlers approaching — useful for all of us given ‘super-trawler’ ships threaten our whole ecosystem. Lobsters often walk ‘hand-in-hand’, and research shows crustaceans can learn to anticipate and avoid pain. No wonder so many caring people are choosing a Kinder Christmas for marine animals!

For All Animals

Animals are a lot like us. They care for their families, they fear pain and they experience joy. So how great is it that we can change the world for them by simply enjoying delicious animal-friendly foods? This Christmas season, you can choose to give the gift of peace and hope to all animals. With the help of some yummy festive dishes — together we'll create a Kinder Christmas for everyone.
