This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about chickens is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Chicken Exploitation - Broiler Meat Production - 04) Selective breeding and genetic manipulation create legs and organs that are unable to support the unnatural growth. Perosis, twisted leg, and heart attacks are common. To produce the huge "chicken breast" that brings profit, this bird cannot even stand up. This bird is about seven weeks old and will be sent to slaughter in a matter of days.
