Because it's not a chicken vending machine but an egg vending machine! Live! Fresh! Good! Um, not exactly. The egg vending machine was an installation made by NOAH (think PETA but German) to show the dark side of how farms treat their chickens.

Its not a chicken vending machine per se, but an egg vending machine. Live eggs! Fresh ones too! Ok perhaps not really. The egg vending machine was an installation made by NOAH to show the dark side of how farms treat their chickens.

NOAH wants people to buy free range eggs in hopes to change how the farming system works, where chickens are all cramped up in a cage. The difference between that and free range chickens, is that chickens are allowed to roam around.  [NOAH]
