Plucking the Down from Geese
Click on the button to begin viewing
Up to five ounces of feathers and down are pulled from each bird every six weeks from the time that they are 10 weeks old until they are up to 4 years of age when they're sent to slaughter.
Plucking geese causes them considerable pain and distress. One study of chickens’ heart rates and behaviors determined that “feather removal is likely to be painful to the bird(s),” and another study found that the blood glucose level of some geese nearly doubled during plucking, a symptom of severe stress.
