Life Stages of a Chicken in Thailand (All In 1 Picture)

By Mark Wiens No Comments

This picture from Khlong Toey Market in Bangkok, Thailand, showcases the chicken for food hierarchy.  This woman owns live chickens that run around a pen before losing their lives for a family in order to make a meager income. 

The income is then wisely spent on food or other livelihood necessities.  On top, the woman nonchalantly eats from a Styrofoam container.  The chickens may not know, but the woman surely knows, that this is the process of life (little does Harry know that he is bound to be next in the Styrofoam container and there’s no redemption).  A little morbid, but such is the Life of a Chicken in Thailand!
