200 Million Chickens In Agony Every Year

Factory farm cruelty on a massive scale has been revealed with evidence that more than 200 million chickens reared in Britain every year suffer deformities because of the appalling way they are raised. More than one in four birds kept in cramped hot-house conditions develop leg problems – the vast majority of which still make it to the supermarket, according to a Government-backed study. The study was undertaken by the food and farming ministry DEFRA and carried out by experts at Bristol University. It reveals 27.3 per cent of birds raised by five major UK producers had moderate to severe leg disorders with this figure rising to 71.7 per cent with one of the five companies. The companies are among the biggest producers in the country that supply the major supermarkets. (The Daily Mail)
