Food Inc. is a 2008 American documentary film directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner. The film examines corporate farming in the United States, concluding that agribusiness produces food that is unhealthy, in a way that is environmentally harmful and abusive of both animals and employees.
The above video clip from Food Inc. is for chickens.
It is recommended to see the whole documentary. For critical reviews, see Top Documentaries or PBS.org

To buy the movie, it's $17.99 from PBS Invite your family and friends over, watch it, and discuss it. Better yet, rent your local community hall and invite the whole neighbourhood.
How is chicken farming different for Small Flockers?
Read SFPFC's Principles or download an Adobe Acrobat pdf version of SFPFC's Principles, ready to print off.
Small Flockers need to be humble. Small Flockers are far from perfect. However, I believe Small Flockers are guided by reasonable and effective principles. With these Principles, we need to practice them to perfection.
Unfortunately, it seems that the #ChickenMafia are not only arrogant, they have lousy, wrong-headed principles. Not only are the #ChickenMafia principles dysfunctional, there is significant cheating by some members of the #ChickenMafia which has documented examples here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
I trust that there are some members of Canada's #ChickenMafia who are at (or soon will be approaching) their breaking point, just like Ms Carole Morison in the Food Inc. documentary. When the documentary was being made, she was a contracted chicken grower for Perdue Farms in the US; Perdue being one of the King Kong gorillas in the US #ChickenMafia. For speaking out, she lost her Perdue contract shortly after appearing in the documentary. The #ChickenMafia is rotting from the inside, as it is attacked from the outside. Where should they go to hide?
As more and more of the members of the #ChickenMafia become disgusted, change will occur.
In spite of this turmoil both inside and out, the #ChickenMafia try to perfect the implementation of their dysfunctional principles. The #ChickenMafia has lost their way.
That's why this Blog exists.
Hopefully, we can all learn and grow together in time.
The showdown for the #ChickenMafia is coming soon enough.
