The protruding legs of several birds had been broken, and hung limply, which must have casued these particular animals excrutiating pain. Others had extensive bald patches, with no feathers, and open sores on their bodies which would have left them vulnerable to the cold and also possible infection.
The crates were stacked directly on top of each other (and to the side) meaning that urine and faeces from the birds above would soil and soak the ones below; the birds in the very bottom crates obviously being the worst affected.
