Factory Farming Sucks!!
This is what happens to many factory-farmed production layers. They are debeaked so they can be kept in very close quarters, bunched up in tiny cages, and not peck each other (which they'd be likely to do out of frustration and overcrowding). A debeaked bird has an awfully hard time eating.
This hen is lucky - she fell out of one of those giant poultry trucks we've all seen on the highways and was rescued by a kind passerby.
