Natalie Maines stands up for turkeys

Hey, it's a Chick standing up for chicks.

Turkey chicks that is.  

Okay, I looked it up and a baby turkey is actually called a poult, but a Chick standing up for poults doesn't have quite the same ring to it, so I'm just rolling with it. 

Anyway, once-and-always-Dixie-Chick Natalie Maines took to Twitter last night to promote a petition against Butterball.  

Mercy for Animals recently released undercover video of the pain and horror baby turkeys go through at the Butterball plant before they ever get the chance to be fattened up for our dinner tables. Trust me, you DON'T want to watch the video if you love your turkey sandwiches.

On a side note, this isn't the first time Natalie has tweeted about turkeys. She also posted these turkey pics in the past, both of which I guess could technically be categorized as turkey abuse.
