Use of antibiotics on chicken has been a common thing among farmers who want to protect their poultry against certain diseases. These antibiotics are either mixed with feeds or water, then fed to the birds at an early age.
Farmers who use antibiotics believe that they come with benefits such as improvement in mortality, morbidity, growth and feed efficiency. But what they do not know is that there are bad effects of use of antibiotics, not only in poultry, but also on humans.
Humans love to feed on food animals like poultry. When these animals are injected with antibiotics, humans later consume the meat, making some diseases that infect them hard to treat.
World Animal Protection, an animal welfare organization, has been at the forefront of condemning the use of antibiotics on poultry. They have an ongoing campaign dubbed Change for chickens and you can sign up to the cruelty against chicken by signing their petition. Follow this link: https://www.worldanimalprotection.or.ke/
