Battery Chickens

This chicken battery farm at Tiruvannamalai is a sad and depressing sight to come across so deep in the agricultural and farming heartland of Tamil Nadu.

If it wasn't so depressing it would be fascinating to find out exactly how this example of agri-business started up here in this backward area.

Its bad enough to know such dreadful places exist out there in the developed world without having to see them start up in the agricultural heartland of India!

I do hope that an animal welfare organisation comes into Tiruvannamalai and sets up a Branch Office to start monitoring animal welfare and transportation of animals in this area.
