I was driving down Route 404 in Delaware when I saw her: a little white chicken sitting just inches away from speeding cars, facing directly into oncoming traffic, her eyes wide open. I pulled over, gently gathered her up, wrapped her in a towel, and placed her on my lap. At first, she squawked in […]

Posted by at 3:22 PM | Permalink | Comments (4)

What’s the backbone of the poultry industry? Suffering. And few touched by this industry escape unscathed.
