    While Baytril is used only on sick chickens and turkeys--and the other birds in their flocks--less powerful antibiotics are routinely also fed to healthy animals. Indeed, 70 percent of all antibiotics in this country are used to fatten up the profits by making commercially raised animals bigger, according to estimates by the Union of Concerned Scientists. Today, virtually all of the 8 billion chickens slaughtered each year are exposed to antibiotics at some point in their lives. (The roughly 36,000 antibiotic-free, certified-organic chickens provide the only exception.)
