Why did the chicken cross the road ?

Colin is an egg turner,
he turns eggs
until they crack,
then he hands
the chicks to Jack.
Jack is a chick feeder
he feeds up broilers.

Broilers get fat fast
so fat, they cant reach water
and their legs snap
under their own weight.

Meet the transport fleet
crammed into cases
at just seven weeks
broken legs, wings and beaks

Colin's daughter manages
the slaughter.
She puts them into shackles
cuts their throats
and boils off their feathers.

She sometimes forgets
to cut their throats.
