Miserable Chickens

Researchers are trying to end the debate between those who think that egg-laying hens in battery cages live miserable lives due to their intense confinement and those who think that they are perfectly happy to be caged. Bruce Friedrich, a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, believes banning the cages is a solution to an obvious problem. He said: "Think about the ... effects of not moving for up to 24 months," ... "Their bones and muscles waste away and they go insane."

It seems absurd there are people questioning that battery caged hens live miserable lives. These hens are deprived from their most basic God-given instincts and are treated like mere commodities since the egg industry is driven by taste and profit, and not by ethical behavior. Unless we show compassion to God's animals we are not following Jesus' example.
