I'm enjoying the tones and the processing, the background blue wheels and yellow trouser-leg are pure serendipity with the colours of the poultry.
This is something that we haven't seen in our markets for so long, I'm fascinated by the detail. Most are crowded into the crates but a couple are wandering free, are they next ones up for sale I wonder?
The British, and particularly our children, have lost contact with how their food is produced. Much of our poultry will have spent their entire lives in conditions not much less confined than this, I suspect that these will have had a better life up to now.

A strong depiction of rural life, Nezih. The markets in Burma didn't even have the luxury of cages, being strung up by their legs!

Thank you Moira and Leon! These cocks, I am sure, will have a much better life in the coops of the buyers than those in the big poultry farming compounds, unless they are bought for slaughtering to eat organic chicken. However, this is still a sore sight, although not a permanent condition. The ones slaughtered for mass production for the supermarkets are transported and reared in terrible conditions. Playing with the genes is another matter that I don't even want to think of.

An excellent photo with so many different lines, shapes, textures and colours!
I feel for the birds, though, being so cramped!

An unusual and lovely image - I don't think we can buy live chickens in this country - probably too many laws preventing it! Smile
