The Chicken

Wishful Thinking


We like to think of chickens living on a farm where they can freely enter and leave a barn...


...and go for a leisurely stroll around the yard...


...and build a nest in which to lay their eggs.

Reality

(Chicken - Baby - 03)  These are more male chicks that have been thrown away as garbage at a hatchery for laying hens.  Some people mistakenly think that there is no death involved in the egg business, but they are sadly mistaken.  To begin with, for every laying hen there is a dead male chick.  At some hatcheries, if the males are not thrown away, they are ground up alive, mixed with grain and fed to the females.
