PRISONED CHICKENS,
POISONED EGGS

An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry

by Karen Davis, Ph.D.
President and Founder of United Poultry Concerns



Publishers Weekly: "Karen Davis has taken on the poultry industry in her thoroughly researched analysis of the gruesome, dirty and brutal lives of factory-farmed chickens."

Booklist: "Davis targets those who eat chicken, turkey, or eggs with her scathing indictment of the poultry industry. Davis documents the inhumane conditions of factory farming, explicitly detailing the lives and deaths of battery hens raised in tiered brooding trays and of broiler chickens. Bolstered by unyielding conviction, Davis argues her case with passion."

The Animals' Agenda: "With eloquence and thoroughness, Karen Davis shows how chickens are treated."

Cherylynn Brown: "My favorite aspect of the book is that the actual nature of the chicken is interwoven through the descriptions of the industrial practices. In other words, you keep the chicken alive throughout the book."

Howard F. Lyman: "Karen's book about the plight of our feathered friends is so compelling it's like sharing their incarceration. This book is mandatory reading."
