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 - Egg Production - 53)  Laying hens are forced to stand every moment of every day on wire bottom cages which hurt their feet.  When a cage mate dies, the live chickens will stand on top of the dead one to relieve the pain.  From the condition of dead chicken, she has obviously been left in the cage for a long time.
