The behavior perspective believes that we do things based on what we have learned from our environment through classical and operant conditioning. Classical conditioning refers to learning by association and operant condition is learning from consequences. So if the chicken is taught that he gets food when he crosses the road, such as in classical conditioning, he will eventually start crossing the road anytime he is hungry. What if the chicken crosses the road for food because it learns that if it doesn’t there is a loud bang behind it? This is the operant conditioning approach.

Food production establishments are expected to uphold the highest quality and health standards. It is more of a requirement than a request that is usually mandated by authority bodies. In this respect, all activities done by Chicken International Group should focus on providing the best products that adhere to health principles.

The dilemma, in this case, is whether the company should charge 20% more for products denoted with the term “free range” or to follow standard guidelines without focusing on increasing profit
Michael Pollan’s alternative to Factory farming has given a huge insight into a better ethics on food. In “The Animals: Practicing Complexity” Michael Pollan writes about a polyface farm and how it works. The goal of a polyface farm is to emotionally, economically, and environmentally enhance agriculture. Everything on a polyface farm has the potential to be helpful to something else on the farm. Pollan states “The chicken feed not only feeds the broilers but, transformed into chicken crap, feeds the grass that feeds the cows that, as I was about to see, feeds the pigs and the laying hens” (Pollan 345).

However, many modern zoos around the world have introduced animal shows, petting and feeding sessions to attract more visitors in order to earn more money.
This can be seen when Lennie and George are discussing their ambitions, and George explains “We’d have plenty of rabbits to eat and sell. An’ we’d keep a few pigeons to go flyin around the win’ mill like they done when I was a kid” (58). Animals like the rabbits are a key part in their dream because they supply money and food. Moreover, the pigeons remind George of freedom and his childhood. In order to cheer Lennie up, George discusses their hopeful future by saying “We’ll have a cow... An’ we’ll have maybe a pig an’ chickens” (105).
