I keep trying to explain that to my vegan friend. his response is to tell me that isn't a relevant arguement in the 21st century.

while asking why the chicken crossed the road, are we really asking why we, ourselves, want that chicken to cross the road? is this our moment to consider the possibilities of what could have been, if just we had the courage of that chicken... are we, as the chicken crossing the road, looking for something... or running from something.  are there any roads left that have gone uncrossed.

One of the last lines in the article goes something like this "PS: My head is in a landfill.".
More than likely the head has been ground up to feed more chickens.

Most domestic varieties would have a hard time avoiding predators - they don't fly well and they don't run very fast. The meat breeds often have a growth curve that has to be managed by how much they're fed in order for them not to gain weight faster than their legs can keep up with.

I wouldn't guess that they'd go extinct, but most varieties would die out in short order. Eventually the remainder would closely resemble the southeast Asian jungle fowl they originated from.

Chickens are bred to be docile and fat. Without our shelter and our breeding them they are in for a really rough ride versus pretty much any predator.

If we didn't eat them, we have no reason to feed and house them. So they get kicked out into the wild with all the predators. Domestication has blunted their survival instincts. They would die in droves. In theory anyway. I would point out that feral chickens do annoyingly well in Hawaii. They have fewer predators there though.

Which is the same for most domesticated animals.  We bred them over thousands of years in some cases for our use.  It's what we do as a species, we manage other species.  Most domestic breeds would have a hard time in the wild.  Cows are not Buffalo.  Chickens are not wild fowl.  Even modern corn would have a hard time.  Personally, I have no problem with this.  I may have problems with Monsanto and agricultural monoculture and even some ethical issues with abuse of livestock, but as for the concept of raising and eating animals.  It's just what humans do.

How much beer are you putting in the waterer?  Looks like that one in front is an angry drunk.  Just kidding though.  Nice clean pen.  We used to keep 75 - 100 of them and it was quite a job with the shovel with that many.  Our garden was over an acre and the chicken crap came in handy.  Out of stupidity we moved to a place that turned from farmland to sprawl and people would freak out to see a bird that wasn't sitting in styrofoam and plastic wrap.  I didn't like chicken-killing day but I sure miss the eggs.

I forgot to mention that most of the varieties bred for laying don't get broody (wanting to sit on a nest full of eggs and incubate them) very often, since when they do that they stop laying (and don't appreciate someone stealing the eggs they're sitting on).

That would make it hard for them to reproduce without artificial incubation.

Cows (some breeds anyway) might do alright without people. I see an awful lot of them that are basically free ranged until they get rounded up for slaughter, the big help they get from people seems to be some salt/mineral blocks and a few spring or windmill fed water troughs.

Not even close.  The best way to prevent this is to take out the middle-man.  Slaughter the chickens at the farm they're raised at and ship dead chickens.  Dead chickens can't be killed in automobile accidents.

If you'd ever been to anywhere there are wild chickens, you'd know this is false. Theyre as resilient as rats. But regardless, I imagine that PeTA's position is that it would be much better for the majority of chickens to die off if the result was no more chickens being raised in horrid conditions.
