Billions of chickens are killed for food every year in the U.S. when they are only 6 to 7 weeks old, and most of the pigs and turkeys killed for food are less than 1 year old. Animals killed for food feel pain when they are stunned, have their throats cut, or are scalded to death or dismembered while they’re still conscious.
