Fake and real about broiler No. 6

FAKE: “These chickens, or perhaps it would be better to call them giant chicks, live between 40 and 60 days. This leads to a series of excruciating sufferings for them before they finally die’.

WHY IT’S A FAKE: They actually grow well precisely because they are healthy. They do not die on farm due to sufferings: they are taken to slaughter when they reach their commercial weight. Given the activists’ habit of comparing conditions in the poultry industry with that of humans, we point out that the total mortality of broilers is lower than the average worldwide infant mortality in humans.
