Horror of intensive chicken farming

Once again, the horrors of intensive chicken farming are exposed. This time, the RSPCA in the UK has found massive cruelty in these kinds of farms.

According to their research, tens of millions of birds die painfully from the inability to cope with their living conditions and food regimen. Chickens raised under the current standards amount to 90 per cent of the 860 million chickens reared every year, who are allocated less space than a sheet of paper per chicken in a shed. The birds are kept in near constant dim light, which promotes eating more and discourages activity to maximize their growth. This rapid growth causes them to suffer from lameness and heart failure among other health issues. On the other hand, the RSPCA says that birds raised under their standards suffer a significantly lower incidence of some serious health problems compared to standard chickens."
