    So there's this story on retarded NBC, about 70.000 chickens dying because some guy turned off the power to the chicken house.
    http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/201...ltry-farm-causes-death-of-70000-chickens?lite

    But they don't explain why. I am assuming the fucking things are newborns, but still, it's the middle of the summer. Why would they die without power? In 15 minutes no less?

    Is it because they ran out of Oxygen somehow?

    The story I read said that he turned the air filtration system off or something like that.

    I've seen an entire building of piggies die when the ventilation got turned off. They run out of air. Think about being in a small car with 6 football players and close all the windows.

    That's an average of 23.3 Thousand Chickens per "House". Given a bird's sensitivity to airborne pollutants, I'd guess that is was air quality related as well.

    Farm chickens are very sensitive. The guy said they start dying after 15 minutes, but the process probably takes a while.

    I'm guessing heat. It would build up fast without the ventilation on.

    That's one of the main reasons for the ventilation...

    I would say heat or the ammonia build up

    all the chicken and turkey houses around here are open all the ways around in the summer and I do not see any fans but they do have electric motors that run the augers that supply the food to the feeders

    Ever smell a chicken house? I'm betting they died from their own stench.

    So they're worth 28 cents to the farmer, and $3.14 to the processor. That's quite a nice markup. Unless they're factoring in some sort of penalties for breaking contracts with their buyers.

    Asphyxiation due to lack of ventilation or heat stroke due to lack of air conditioning.

    I'd say a combination of the two.

    Poor air quality kills the little fuckers quickly.

    Not exactly. Wording was different intentionally. Think about it.

    They panicked because there wasn't a road in sight. 70,000 little heart attacks.

    Probably from a combination of heat and poor air quality. One time we made the mistake of driving behind a chicken house without rolling up the windows on the truck. The industrial exhaust fan blew a tornado of the most vile smelling shit and about 50 flies right into our faces. Also if you've ever had the pleasure of cleaning our a chicken coop, even a small one, you would totally understand why they died.

    I'll bet they couldn't breathe and it got hot in there.

    Probably my favorite topic title ever. I couldn't wait to find out what this was about.

    RIP house of chickens
