From these videos, I do not think the farms or the RSPCA are providing for and protecting this birds.

In one of the videos you will see many lame birds. this is caused from special hybridized breeding that speeds up the birds growth faster than their legs can handle it. it also effects their hearts and many die. Not recieving proper light and diet is also to blame This is why farming in excess like this is just WRONG and must be stopped!!

It is reported that this particular farm is RSPCA accredited as a Freedom Food and that their accreditation has been suspended by the RSPCA! One wonders how factory farms can get animal welfare accreditation in the first place!

Yes, show to the world how bad animals are treated on this planet. Who are we to decide that animals are lesser than humans. They are on this planet and have the right to live free and peaceful. We should get off this planet, the animals can survive without us.

How can they treat these lovable,friendly birds like this.Chickens and other birds are treated worst than any other food animals.It is a shame that money and wealth is more important than proper care of animals and birds
