One more reason to buy from Sheepdrove

Animal welfare organisations are calling on consumers to act amid fears new EU legislation will lead to hundreds of millions of factory farm chickens being reared in conditions worse than they live in now. Regulations being considered by Defra will allow farmers to reduce the amount of space allocated to each bird, already less than one sheet of A4 paper, claimed the RSPCA.

Such legislation would fly in the face of a recent groundswell of support from consumers and retailers for improved welfare for chickens following high-profile campaigns by TV chefs Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Jamie Oliver, said the charity.
