Chickens are the most abused animals in animal husbandry! Chickens live and die in cages and in grow out houses. Even “cage free” and “free range” on a commercial egg carton doesn’t mean much. Legally it doesn’t mean anything more than they are in the same old houses without the cages but with even more birds. They aren’t fed differently and their “free range access” is nothing more than a cement slab with no incentive for the birds to even go out there. Don’t get me started on the heartbreak of meat chickens growing 6lbs in 6 weeks, now that’s torture.
