If you still eat chicken, and you aren't buying cage-free or free-range chickens, here's how they are shipped to slaughter. I passed one of these trucks yesterday on Hwy 101 north of Santa Rosa. The cages were so short, the chickens were lying on their sides. It was the most sickening disregard for a live being I've ever seen. And if this doesn't do it for you, think of the terror of traveling at 55 mph in open air. There was no ID on the truck, so no way to know which farm they came from or where they were going.
Jul 24, 2018 - At the slaughterhouse, after being held in the trucks for 1 to 12 hours, chickens raised for meat are torn from the cages and hung upside down.
