I hear that, in some cases, to stop the chocolate hens from pecking one another they chop off the ends of their beaks (that’s where the end of a Cornetto ice-cream comes from!)

On a slightly more serious note, many chickens on battery farms are seriously abused (you only need to do a quick search on google to find some truly distressing photos and videos of the kind of mistreatment that goes on). What’s more, most of the time our response to learning about mistreatment of animals in the food industry is pretty much summed up by the last panel: We just carry on and ignore it. So, not trying to sound too preachy, do the right thing and buy free range eggs.
