This video shows the life and death of a broiler chicken, the chickens you get chicken meat from. These chickens grow in shed filled with thousands of chickens and usually only get less than a half a square foot of living space. They're given steroids to grow bigger than their ancestors so they can be slaughtered sooner. Many develop crippling leg disorder because thier legs cannot support their abnormally large bodies and die of dehydration in the shed before they are slaughtered. Some are burned by ammonia gases and the sheds are dirty and disease-ridden.
