Mutilation

Baby birds like Avery have their sensitive beaks burned off the moment they are born. Many are left permanently deformed.

STARVEOUT

Mutilation and stress cause millions of birds to simply stop eating. They are trampled to death after they collapse. The industry has a term for this: "starveout."

Slaughter

Weak birds will have their throats snapped - punishment for not growing fast enough. But even those who survive, including Avery, will be killed.
