Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s Free Range Chicken Quest

Do you know where your last chicken came from?

If it was free-range then breathe a sigh of relief. But if it was a supermarket bird then you might want to reconsider your dining options in the future.

I write this after spending the last couple of evenings watching a UK TV show – Hugh’s Chicken Run – presented by River Cottage chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall detailing the horrors of modern broiler chicken farming.

I’ll spare you the details here but you can read more about Fearnley Whittingstall’s Chicken Out campaign on You Tube and on his River Cottage site.

The goal of the campaign is to change how Brits eat chicken – specifically by urging the major supermarket chains to only stock free range birds.

Trust me, one look at how these industrially-reared chickens are raised and you’ll never eat non-free range again.

  1. So after watching this and hearing the FDA deem cloned meats “safe” yesterday, that means cows, pigs, goats and chickens off the list. Or, more realistically, finding a farmer nearby who we trust.
