According to their research, tens of millions of birds die painfully
from the inability to cope with their living conditions and food

cent of the 860 million chickens reared every year, who are allocated
less space than a sheet of paper per chicken in a shed. The birds are
kept in near constant dim light, which promotes eating more and
discourages activity to maximize their growth. This rapid growth causes
