Chickens are smart, social animals who bond with their families and value their own lives. On factory farms, they’re crammed by the tens of thousands into filthy, barren sheds, where they’re denied the opportunity to do anything that comes naturally to them. When they’re just a few weeks old, they’re packed into crates and shipped to the abattoir, where they’re suffocated with carbon dioxide or shackled, hung upside down, and electrocuted before their throats are finally slit.
