I just wanted to write this to highlight some awareness for the cruelty that is inflicted on chickens and turkeys.
I like chicken meat a lot. Right now, at this very minute I can smell roast chicken and it's making my belly rumble. Chicken is the most popular meat in the world, with even so-called 'vegatarians' making exceptions to eat it. Yet many people are not aware, or often choose not to be aware, of the cruelty that is inflicted on these birds before being served up as dinner. The chickens that go towards KFC and many other big suppliers are known as 'broiler' chickens and thousands are crammed up, right as I type, in ridiculously tiny cages, often even shared with another chicken, who will peck and scratch that chicken because it is so much in pain that it takes its pain out on someone else in its demented state. These chickens, which are just young, growing birds with soft bones, are fed growth-enhancing chemicals which make them grow so fat that their leg bones buckle and snap under the strain. Every barn of cages rings with the tortured crows and shrieks of these birds; then at the end of it all they are killed in the name of 'value' meat.
