    Quote:That's one thing I heard that was weird.

    Do these chicken's stop laying so soon? or do they just want the meat when they are in their "prime?"

    Quote:Leghorns are too lightweight to be "prime" meat. After 2 years, their egg laying starts to slow down, so they're out with the old and in with the new to keep the profits up. Sad life for a hen.

    That looked like a clean facility, but check out how pale the combs and wattles are on those poor hens!

    And i thought we weren't supposed to wash eggs. They blast them on here with disinfectant. Maybe because soooo many chickens in such a small place disease is probably everywhere. Eggs probably rolled over chicken's dead bodies. I'm sure the place had everyone working overtime scrubbing the heck out of the place to make it presentable for TV!
