Chicken Out! Campaign Sign-up

i've been watching the chicken out campaign on channel 4 and it has really opened my eyes to the way chicken is farmed. the programme was fronted by hugh fearnley-whittingstall of river cottage fame and showed the differences between free range and intensively farmed chickens. it made some good points about how buying free range chicken need not be greatly more expensive than the bog standard variety.

he also tried to get interviews with the major supermarkets in the uk but they were unsurprisingly reluctant.

give the campaign website a look and and show your support by signing up!

No surprise on the supermarkets, but Hugh and the producers were not entirely honest on some counts (e.g. claiming no farmer would allow them access). However, the show was excellent at banging home the point that cheap food always costs.
