Perdue Chickens and The Truth About Factory Farms
Although I'm not a vegetarian, I can't help being moved by the video and the stories of the horrible life of these chickens and so I had to create an illustration. What struck me was how taxed their internal organs are due to their "disproportionately large chests" and this condition forces them to spend most of their time on the ground as they are unable to hold up the weight of their bodies.
The video was posted by Compassion in World Farming's Better Chicken Initiative and you can watch it at the BCI link above.
