If you haven't already heard, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has started a campaign to raise public awareness of the horrific conditions under which cheap chicken meat is produced - and hopefully make people think twice before supporting the barbarism with their purchasing choices. It's called 'Chicken Out' and you can get further info and sign up to the campaign via the link to the website displayed further down on the right hand side of my blog.
I have signed up, and also made a belated New Year's Resolution to only buy and eat free-range chicken from now on. Until now I've bought it infrequently, partly due to the hassle of sourcing it, and partly due to the extra cost. I've now decided I'd rather eat chicken less frequently, but with a clear conscience.
On behalf of chickens the world over, Blanche, Blodwen, Bronwen, Bella and I thank you for your time!
