I read this. Decided to google it.
For all of you who didn't watch it, sit down and don't eat while doing so. This is honestly one of the saddest, most disgusting things I have ever seen and I do not even understand how it is legal. Even if you have no sympathy for chickens (which all of us obviously do), it makes you disgusted about where your eggs/ food come from. I am sick to my stomach and I think I am done eating eggs until my girls start laying. No animal should be treated like this.Th
Thank you very much for posting the link to the wegmans cruelty video.
I knew there was problems in poultry industry yet did not know to what extent. I have seen some snippets on pbs etc.........this video that you posted the link to..........is very well done and I will be sharing this with my family and friends and folks I know from my church.
I know a lot of people who are very eco conscious and just want to be healthy for themselves and be good to mother earth etc..................this is a no brainer for them. I wonder how many people know the details however.
This info is important for health of people and animals................and seems so extreme that when people raise a few backyard chickens........that issue should be so trivial that no one would object and infact they might be particularly glad that this is done!
I am really moved after watching the video! thanks again.
