These five-day-old chicks were already on the farm when I arrived. Talk about mass production—there are 39,000 chicks huddled together in this house. Actually, this is only half a chicken house. Farmers won’t remove the dividing wall until the chicks are big enough to need more room. Although they apparently prefer to jam up together, there was still plenty of room left in this half for these babies to spread out if they wanted.
