Factory farmers should be locked into similar conditions for a month or two to see how they like it.
Also, it should be banned, post haste. The lack of feathers are due to cannablistic plucking (unless this was taken during the molt) and any chickens with crests and wottles as pale as these are clearly unhappy.

Please sign my petitions.

Poor chickens, all animals should be able to see the sun, breath fresh air, touch the earth with their feet and run around to their hearts content. Thanks Simone

I still do not understand how 7% of people interviewed can not vote! " these people are lagging behind the progress and they are soulless. They are unable to think outside their little selfish person and unable to feel compassion for others! But when it is they who suffer a bit, then they are the first to whine! Too bad I'm not born with a gift, I would make them suffer exactly the same thing they dare laugh wildly.

this is from a past member who wrote this in French and I thought you may be interested.
