You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

-One they do not house 30,000 chickens in a 1 acre farm, there are 24,000 to start with.
-Two just as a organically raised chicken with chicks, all of these things will happen with their hatchlings as well. How do I know that? Because we raised baby chicks and chickens for eggs on the side for our own benefit. The chickens you get in the store typically do not and will not produce eggs because they are about 6 weeks old when killed
-The point about they are not allowed fresh air is bull****. Most chicken houses have at least 12 6ft fans on one side to ventilate, and about 30 more within the house, and curtains along side the houses can be lowered and raised to let in plenty of fresh air. There are also misters installed in the houses to mist the chickens to help them cool off. It would be impossible to raise chickens if you couldn't do this, especially because most of America's chickens come from the south. In fact you can see the guys curtains on the side of the house! Now why would they say they can't have natural sunlight, yet there would be an acre worth of curtains on the side? Lol
-The part about them lying around in their feces is true, but that is after they destroy a decent amount of shaving. Another part of why this has to be for such a massive farm is fire ants. Fire ants just do not like chicken **** one bit. It's a natural deterrent. Even in old fashion chicken coops they use it to keep them away. If you don't do this, then a lot of these chickens would get eaten alive. Not to mention, it is still a struggle to continuously do your best to keep out chicken hawks, fire ants, wild cats (feral cats), owls, dogs, all kinds of things that want to eat them.
Lastly, I know it isn't the ideal solution, but this is the reality of the matter. People love chicken. I love chicken. I've been around chickens all my life. I loved all of them when I was a kid. A lot of the ones you see with broken legs I would take care of and my grandfather would give to other farmers that had ways to deal with them otherwise, all of those lame chickens got killed. That's another thing, I've killed literally thousands of lame chickens in my life, (or picked up the dead ones) put them in a bucket, and dumped them in a hole.
I took the bad with the good though and I loved chicken farming when I was a kid. But yeah if I were you I would concentrate on the concerns of the farmers first over the chickens if you want real change.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
squirrels, raccoons = destructive pests
nearly any species of bird = food
Livestock animals - chickens, pigs and cows = food
horse = working animal, now family pet
What's so hard to understand about that?
It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.

What rights do you think animals should have?

If animals are, to you, too "dumb" to be afforded any rights, you cannot then turn around and say that we don't have the right to abuse them. For you to argue that animals should have no rights, that would include that they have no right to be protected from cruelty. What could possibly be your justification for supporting animal protection laws if animals have no right to be treated any certain way?
I don't think they have a right to be protected, I think they should be protected because I think animal cruelty is wrong. My opinion on this is just as arbitrary as someone who thinks they should have no protection and someone who thinks they should be given the same status as people.If animals are, to you, too "dumb" to be afforded any rights, you cannot then turn around and say that we don't have the right to abuse them.
