|SOMETIMES CHANGE HAS TO START FROM WITHIN|
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Chickens (HBO)
John Oliver explains how chicken farming can be unfair, punishing, and inhumane. And not just for the chickens!
Factory farmed chickens are bred to grow so big and so quickly, they often can’t support their own weight.
Jim Perdue—his family has made a mega-fortune peddling “the quality of his chickens supposedly based on kind treatment.” Like everything else in this system, an abject lie. Curious that he and his father do look like chickens.

PS I never thought we’d get an opportunity like this, and I want to show everyone in the world Craig’s ‘humanely raised’ chickens. I want people to be as outraged as Craig and I that companies like Perdue are getting away with calling factory farming ‘humane’. Sometimes change has to start from within.
