Broiler chickens are raised for meat...and they put up with a lot of inhumane practices. They are drugged to grow at an abnormally rapid pace which affect their organs and commonly breaks their legs. They are housed in giant sheds with up to 20,000 other chickens, all living in their own waste.
Those are only a couple examples of things they go through.
Please pity these poor birds by going to www.freewebs.com/earlymorningchickens - my site, and clicking on the Chicken Abuse Page.
Also, www.kentuckyfriedcruelty.com helps prevent this torture as well.
