Toelichting (Engels) The unacceptable ways that chickens are raised for their meat and the pain and stress they are often caused is rightly putting food retailers under increasing scrutiny. Most of the 60 billion chickens farmed annually worldwide endure acute and severe suffering. Starting as new- born chicks, they are forced to reach their slaughter weight in around 40 days. Such an unnaturally fast growth rate places an enormous strain on their young bodies. Their lives are made even worse through cruel confinement in crowded, featureless and unnaturally lit sheds. For years these brutal farming practices have thrived behind closed doors, invisible to most consumers. But times are changing. Consumer awareness of the high price chickens pay for our fast food enjoyment is increasing, just as it did for the suffering of caged egg-laying hens some years ago.
