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 - 05) 

Here's a photograph taken from the website of a 'free range' egg farm in Victoria, Australia. The farm is accredited by the Australian Egg Corporation's Egg Corp Assured program. It demonstrates the standard practice of debeaking chickens in Australia on the overwhelming majority of so-called 'free range' farms.
