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 - Forced Molting - 01)  As laying hens age, they begin to lay fewer eggs.  So, in order to increase their profits, the egg industry starves the hens for up to two weeks, causing the hens to molt.  The forced molting puts the hens in a survival mode, so that when they are fed again, they begin to lay more eggs.  Financial gain does not justify such evil practices.
