From rotting in cages to roosting in branches, former battery hens enjoy life at United Poultry Concerns. Despite thousands of years of domestication, chickens are essentially the wild jungle fowl of their ancestry, with the same cravings for lush soil, trees, and activities suited to the tropical forests they originated in. May is International Respect for Chickens Month. Let people know how beautiful and “green» chickens truly are.

At the slaughterhouse, birds may wait in the trucks from one to 9 hours or more depending on killing and processing speed. These chickens fell off the truck onto the cement loading dock at Townsend's chicken slaughter plant in Millsboro, Delaware.
