    Those chickens have what looks to be better housing than some people. They have lots of feeders and water and obviously someone who is caring for them.

    Exactly. That village is not a very nice place to live. Those chickens will be
    well cared for and will then feed people, mostly kids. I think they are very noble
    fat little birds.

    Those chickens don't look at all stressed. They are well cared for. Makes me want some nice curried chicken with peanuts on rice! YUM!!

    come to think of it they do look happier then Cornish X's here and they look like they have a nice house and a great guy to take care of them. Better then the meat we eat here.
