The cruelest of mankind: Chickens too fat to stand; never see daylight; frequently die before they reach maturity and are left covered in their own faeces

Warning this story is not for the faint hearted...
As the British government decide weather to import American Chickens to UK shops, horror story's of the treatment of these innocent creatures are hitting the British media.

Exposed: The REAL reason America's 'Frankenchickens' have to be washed with chlorine as US industrial farming practices are exposed.
Too fat to stand and their flesh rots while they're alive
Birds are crammed into warehouses and are so heavy they buckle under weight.

Chlorine-washed chickens to on go on sale in British shops in a post-Brexit trade deal last week has exposed the reason why American Chickens needs such drastic chemical treatment but that is just an indicator to the horrendous conditions these poor birds have to endure.

Now whistleblower farmers have revealed the full horror of the suffering to The Mail on Sunday, including how: Tens of thousands of super-sized 'Frankenstein' birds are crammed in vast warehouses.
The chickens, which weigh up to 9lb, often buckle under their weight and must live without natural sunlight.
Chickens frequently die before they reach maturity and many are left covered in their own faeces, turning warehouses into vile breeding grounds for disease.
Unlike in the UK and Europe, there are no minimum space requirements for breeding chickens in the US.
America also does not have any rules governing lighting levels in the sheds and, crucially, its farms have no maximum allowed level of ammonia, which indicates how much urine and faecal matter is present.
This means there is no limit on how much can fester inside the sheds.
There is no legal requirement to wash US chickens in chlorine or other disinfectants, but 97 per cent of its birds are cleaned in this way after slaughter.
'They spend 95 per cent of their time sitting on the litter, a mixture of pine shavings and faecal matter from that flock and prior flocks.'
He said 1,000 of the 30,000 chickens he raised every six weeks would die before they reached maturity.
Many become infected on the underside of their chest because of contact with the litter.
He added: 'Their flesh would rot and, when you have them crammed in so tight, they will walk over other birds if they want to get to the food or scratch the others and cause a wound.
It is awful.'
Mr Watts, a married father- of-three, quit the poultry business two years ago because he was disgusted by its practices.

Termix herbicide leak into Tinker Creek Virginia wiped out birds bees insects and fish and poisoning drinking water

Fallout continued Sunday after Saturday's chemical spill into Tinker Creek.
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management now says it believes 165 gallons of Termix herbicide leaked into Tinker Creek Saturday morning.
Homeowners as far as five miles down-stream from the leak say they're seeing more dead wildlife, and now, they're worried about long-term consequences.
Stephen Rossi and his grandkids spend many weekends feeding the fish down on Tinker Creek, but this time, none are biting.
"Around four o'clock, we started seeing fish dying.
Fish were dying by the hundreds," said Rossi.
Rossi says, thanks to Saturday's herbicide spill, those fish now line the bottom of his creek, but he says that's not his biggest concern.
"There's no birds, there's no insects, and I hope that doesn't mean that something very, very serious has happened," said Rossi.
Even Rossi's bees that he keeps appear to have fallen victim to the water contamination.
Rossi estimates that during Saturday's chemical spill, about two-thirds of the bees in his beehive were killed by drinking the water out of the stream.
"They started to have a major die-off.
There was probably thousands in a circle on the bottom, on the ground, unable to fly, paralyzed or whatever, and so what I did was I took and brought some fresh water up," said Rossi.
Now, Rossi is concerned his own drinking water supply might be contaminated.
"We have a spring here right next to the creek.
We use it for geothermal heating and cooling of our house, and we can drink it, but of course we won't," said Rossi.
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management is checking wells and springs like Rossi's close to Tinker Creek.
One home services specialist WSLS spoke with says for now, only trust bottled water.
"Do not boil the water.
Boiled-water is good for a bacteria agent or any bacteria in the water.
It won't kill a chemical.
If anything it might intensify it, depending on the chemical agent," said Ted Puzio with Southern Trust Home Services.
The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality is now investigating to learn the extent of the damage.
The agency spent Sunday digging up soil at the site of the spill to keep the chemical from leaking into the ground water.
VDEQ will have biologists out taking samples of water in the creek starting Monday. Rossi says, he's hoping for the best.
"I hope there's some mitigated circumstances that will make it not as bad as it looks today," said Rossi.

It's killing people by the millions around the world: ''Serious'' levels of air pollution recorded across Hong Kong this weekend

Hong Kong recorded ''very high'' to ''serious'' levels of air pollution across the city on Sunday afternoon, made worse by Typhoon Nesat and Tropical Storm Haitang as light winds hindered the dispersion of pollutants.
As of 2pm, all 13 of the Environmental Protection Department's air pollution monitoring stations recorded ''very high'' levels of pollution.
Two roadside stations also recorded similar results, with the Causeway Bay station registering ''serious'' levels of pollution - the highest in a five-tier scale of ''low'', ''moderate'', ''high'', ''very high'' and ''serious''.
''Under the influence of the outer subsiding air from Typhoon Nesat and Tropical Storm Haitang, a continental airstream is affecting Hong Kong.
The weather is very hot with moderate west to northwesterly winds,'' the department said in an announcement on Sunday.
''Light winds hindered the dispersion of air pollutants formed yesterday and led to higher than normal pollution levels in the morning.
The intense sunshine enhances photochemical smog activities and the formation of ozone, resulting in high ozone concentrations in the Pearl River Delta region.''
The high level of ozone has contributed to the formation of nitrogen dioxide particularly in parts of urban areas and along roads, the department said.
More monitoring stations are expected to record ''serious'' levels of pollution later on Sunday, it added.
A 19-year-old man was sent to North District Hospital after he felt unwell while hiking in Sheung Shui.
Temperatures reached an average of 34 degrees Celsius on Sunday afternoon, with Sha Tin, Kowloon City, Happy Valley and Sham Shui Po recording 37 degrees.
It was 36 degrees in Tuen Mun, Shau Kei Wan and Kwun Tong.
The Observatory has issued the ''very hot weather'' warning, meaning that the risk of heatstroke is high.
