Animals Australia's investigation video shows baby birds suffering from heart disease, lameness, thirst, starvation and trampling inside a shed packed with over 40,000 birds.

Threatened by rising concern for the welfare of animals, Australia’s major chicken producers are attempting to mislead consumers with confusing terms such as ‘cage free’, and ‘free to roam’ — despite the fact that cages are never used in broiler facilities. The reality is that chicken meat from all major producers — including Steggles and Inghams — are factory farmed.

It's vile - just unbearable. And on a such a monstrous scale - so many Australians contributing to so much horrific cruelty, without so much as a second thought - it makes you despair.....

What do people expect when they have given up their right to grow and produce their food at home. The food has to come from somewhere so their commercial farms have come into being. We are all guilty of what's being done to animals.
What we think is what we create.
Remember Christ said their is no sin its you who make sin exist by your corrupt nature ,this is where sin lies. So start by looking after yourself and not relying on others to produce your food and thinking for yourself then all the rest will follow.

Very sad, and these companies which seek to mislead people by using phrases as "cage free" etc and getting caught out thankfully by these animal welfare organisations. It is such a shame as consumers who are trying to do the right thing are bei ng mislead. Still on a positive note, some retailers are taking note that people want to buy chickens that have not been treated this way, Woolworths Safeway supermarkets now are selling barbequed chicken that is Free Range(plus the other cruel prodcucers), still it is a start. It is up to the consumers to drive the demand for kinder methods of farming and not support these cruel practices. It is kinder and heallthier for all concerned. I am trying not to buy commercial pet foods as I do not know the sources of their meats, my pets are very happy about this, they eat what I do!
