Do they suffer?

Understanding whether an animal is in pain is often a matter of common sense and difficult to fully assess. One should always refer to the ability to do the same with people. How much suffering do humans experience is not identifiable except by doing in-depth research and studies on each individual. Protected poultry farms are geared towards eliminating the most predictable causes of suffering. Abundant availability of quality food and clean water, environments protected from weather, predators and disease, temperature and air control. And all this in the knowledge that these are animals destined for our kitchen.
