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 - Debeaked - 03)  This is a close up look at a battery hen who has been debeaked.  When chickens are so crowded together, they irritate one another, just as we would under similar living conditions.  Chickens respond to such irritation by pecking the other bird.  In natural living conditions, the offending bird would just move away; but in cages, they can't, so these "farmers" cut off the end of their beaks to minimize the injuries.  People create one evil and then create another evil to try to correct the first evil.  How depraved!
