How Do Chicks And Chickens Die? 14 Of The Ways


How do chickens die?

1. In San Diego baby males were sent alive through a wood chipper.

2. In Iowa on a conveyor belt they are sent alive into a crusher

   and come out as paste.

3. On many farms they are strangled to death.

4. In many places they are dropped into eviscerators,

    metal tubs full of swirling knives.

5. At one major fast food chain, some chickens died

of scalding while alive.

6. On loading docks at many USPS and other places

the chicks are crushed in flimsy cardboard boxes, Republican

senators having removed all the humane protectionsand

having classified these chick males

as commercial mail.

7. Some die of thirst

8. Others in factory farm electric outages

  die of freezing or of baking.

9. Some die in ritual religious sacrifices.

10. Some are dropped into the street as boxes

slip from cranes. These are run over by cars bikes

buses and trucks.

11. At some universities, corporations, and tax supported USDA torture centers

they are researched upon.

12. On some farms they are decapitated by ax wielding human beings.

13. Some chickens molt too soon. Their feathers drop away and they freeze

to death.

14. On farms, helpless chickens caged and captive, are prey to foxes, coyotes, etc

who kill them.


How do chickens suffer?

1 When they are debeaked, their tongues sometimes catch in the debeaker.

2. When they are caged in factory farms, they spend their lives unable in

  many instances to spread their wings. Sometimes 9 are crammed into

a one foot by three foot cage.

3. Sometimes their claws grow around the wire mesh on which they stand

and they are unable to move.

Help change the world.  Don't eat chickens or eggs. Don't buy chicken meals for others. Don't prepare chicken meals for others.
