45 Days

COK - Compassion Over Killing - investigators gathered hundreds of photos and dozens of hours of footage from U.S. broiler chicken ("meat" chickens) factory farms and slaughter plants. In this landmark investigation, the lives and deaths of these birds were documented week after week, until their deaths at an industry average of only 45 days.

COK produced a gripping 12-minute documentary film - 45 Days: The Life and Death of a Broiler Chicken - as well as launched a new website at, where you'll find a comprehensive, fully cited report on the broiler industry, photos, video clips, chicken-free recipes, and much more.
