 This is Baby Doll, the lovely young Bourbon Red hen from Northern Idaho, in contemplating the fast-approaching end of her brief (and perhaps reasonably happy) life.

 She is beautiful, I hope instead of contemplating the end of her life she's deep in thought as to how to escape and manages to do so! She's far too beautiful to end up on someone's plate!

 No such luck. That's her in the previous picture, about an hour later. It turned out her nice back-to-the-earth owners...

 ...were unexpectedly invited to a vegetarian family's Thanksgiving, so poor Baby Doll just served as practice. The owners have neither oven nor freezer on their new homestead, so maybe Baby Doll...

 This is all from a blog where I found Baby Doll's snapshots, until you get to comment 5, which is my own speculation.

 That is a horrific waste of a life, to kill something and not eat it is against all laws of nature. Turkeys are very intelligent gentle beings. You caught her spirit well.

 To even think that we can be "owners" of another living being. Just goes to show the slave owner mentality is still deeply ingrained.

 Little homestead/backyard amateur farms can't avoid the random cruelties of all agriculture, as I found out the hard way once upon a time. Still far better than supermarkets & factory farms.

 Better yet would be a return to hunting and gathering, but that's not a guarantee of virtue either (see mammoth notes).

 beautiful celebration of innocence. besides the cruelty of killing, and the waste, it is insanely inefficient to farm animals as food, puts a huge burden on the planet.
