The man was plucking out some live chickens from the cage placed in the shop

I came to a store in which some big bird cages were placed again. Every cage was filled with live chickens. This store was selling live chickens. Not only chicken meat but also live chickens were sold in this Khlong Toei Market.

Apart from cow or pig, it might be possible to slaughter chickens for ordinary people. Some shoppers could buy live chickens here. Anyway, most of the chickens were roasted as soon as they were plucked out from the cage.

The man in this photo stood beside the big cage. And he was just plucking out some chickens from it. The chickens were put on the cage. Nevertheless, they couldn't run away because they were leashed with a plastic rope.

Although they came out of the cage, their destinies were determined already at this stage. They would be slaughtered in this market or in the house of the shopper.
