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 - 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.
