I did click on your first link, but judging by its tone and content I didn't bother with your video. I hope you find a healthy channel for all that anger. It may consume you one day
But if they made unconscious before that they wouldn't even notice it, and the meat would be better, animals that are killed while stressed do not taste as good and their meat turns bad faster than the meat from animal killed while they unconscious.

Well they wouldn't feel pain for very long if they were thrown into a grinder.

I only eat free range chicken and eggs. This spring I'll be getting my own chickens, and yes, I'll be butchering them myself.
Factory raised meat is not not healthy. Between the way they are raised and the food they are given.
I am pretty anti-vegan, because I believe humans need meat and dairy products. However, I do believe in treating the animals humanely and giving them a kind death. Happy animals, makes for healthy meat.
On what do you base that idea that eating animals 2-3 times a week is a LOT?

If we eat animals 2-3 times a week, that is already a LOT.
Although I eat meat (including fish), I do not eat it at breakfast, so I'm limited to a maximum of 14 meals per week.
We don't need to eat 20 meat-based meals every week.
Two paragraphs above it was a LOT, now we can make do?
We can make do with 2-3 meals a week, and eat plants the rest of the time - many cuisines (espy. Italian, Indian, Southeast Asian, Oriental) have a massive diversity of plant-based recipes.
The only for doing that way is greed, we also eat meat in Portugal and we don't need those systems to get our meat.
The only REASON for this sort of industrialised mass-killing of birds/animals is because people (like you and I) feel that they HAVE TO HAVE MEAT in every frickin' meal. Or most of 'em. And this massive demand means the supply needs to be there, that too at an affordable cost for the masses.
