“we’ve successfully bred most of the chicken out of the chicken.” Unable to support their massive bodies, many cannot stand, and spend much of their lives lying in their own waste with open sores and infections. On top of that, factory-like farms offer chickens almost no room to move and almost no ability to engage in natural behavior like perching and dust bathing. On more humane farms, birds...

Yes, hens can cluck and bawk from sun up to sun down. But then they stop once they're in the coop at night. So if you're trying to sleep during the day since the neighbor dog barked his fool head off in the backyard because his owners left him out while they were on their own date night, those pesky chickens will keep you from catching Zs while the sun is up. Oh, and once you shut the hens up,...
