Investigation On Italian Farm Shows Chickens Genetically Suffer


Animal Equality collected the bodies of 7 chickens from an Italian factory farm and brought them to a team of specialized veterinarians who analyzed them. The genetic selection toward faster and bigger growth had significant consequences on the health of the animals, including severe bone damage, poor blood circulation and breathing, and damage to internal organs. Animal Equality in Italy is demanding that the Italian Government, the Minister of Health, and the Minister for Agricultural Policies prohibit breeding animals genetically selected to grow so large and so fast that they spend their entire lives suffering.
