Where does your “food” come from?
This eye-opening video provides a glimpse into a chicken’s life – if that chicken is unlucky enough to be born into the meat industry. The chicken’s name is Jane. She is one of the nine billion chickens raised – and killed – for meat each year in the United States.
In the 1950s, it took 84 days to raise a five-pound chicken. Today, because of selective breeding and growth-promoting drugs, birds reach slaughter weight in just 45 days. Those 45 days are filled with misery: birds like Jane are kept cruelly confined in small, dark, and filthy sheds to later be denied food, water, and protection from the weather as they are transported to slaughter in tiny crates.

Stand up for Jane by keeping chickens off your plate. To contribute to Animal Outlook’s work to make vegan eating easier and accessible, visit animaloutlook.org/donate.
