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 - 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!
