Chickens are arguably the most abused animals on the planet. More chickens are killed for food than all other land animals combined, yet not a single federal law protects them from abuse.
The best way to help chickens? Cutting them out of your diet. Below are links to vegan starter kits.
Chickens raised for their flesh, called “broilers” by the chicken industry, spend their entire lives with tens of thousands of other birds in filthy sheds, where intense crowding and confinement lead to outbreaks of disease. They’re bred and drugged to grow so large so quickly that their legs and organs can’t keep up, making heart attacks, organ failure, and crippling leg deformities common. Many become crippled under their own weight and eventually die because they can’t reach the water nozzles.
When they’re only 6 or 7 weeks old, they’re crammed into cages and transported to slaughter.
At the slaughterhouse, their legs are forced into shackles, their throats are cut, and they’re immersed in scalding-hot water to remove their feathers. Almost all chickens are still conscious when their throats are cut, and many are literally scalded to death in the feather-removal tanks after missing the throat cutter.
