Following activist investigations, KFC's suppliers has been exposed breeding crippled, mutated chickens. Horrendous living conditions and poorly implemented and inhumane slaughter methods makes a miserable life for millions of these intelligent birds.

End the Horrific Abuse of Millions of Chickens!
Chickens are inquisitive and interesting animals and are thought to be at least as intelligent as dogs or cats. In natural surroundings, not on factory farms, they form friendships and social hierarchies, recognise one another, love their young, and enjoy a full life, dust bathing, making nests, roosting in trees, and more.
The more than 700 million chickens raised each year for KFC aren't able to do any of these things. They are crammed by the tens of thousands into sheds that stink of ammonia fumes from accumulated waste; they are given barely even room to move (each bird lives in the amount of space equivalent to a standard sheet of paper). They routinely suffer broken bones from being bred to be top heavy, from callous handling (workers roughly grab birds by their legs and stuff them into crates) and from being shackled upside down at slaughterhouses.
Chickens are often fully conscious as their throats are cut or when dumped into tanks of scalding hot water to remove their feathers. When they're killed, chickens are still babies, not yet two months old, out of a natural life span of 10-15 years.
In May of 2001, KFC's parent company, Yum Brands, Inc. assured PETA that it intended to 'raise the bar' on animal welfare; yet, to date, KFC has done nothing to address some of the most egregious animal cruelty in the chicken industry. We need your help to convince KFC to take some key steps to reduce the worst suffering.
