Please help stop this chicken factory in rural Wales

Not just for the benefit of the local residents but for the welfare of the birds themselves, please help by signing the petition. You may hav to cut and paste the link into your browser - I can't find any other way to get to the petition.

Thanks. Just tried clicking on the link and it took me straight there!

I signed it too. Don't know if I'm more sorry for the chickens, or the local residents.

I signed it as well. We must do all we can to prevent factory farming.

Interesting article on relative measures of animal suffering in intensive farming.
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... -suffering

I've just somewhat guiltily bought a dozen eggs, whilst waiting for my girls to catch up on their sporadic laying whilst in moult. Does it count as suffering if they're free range organic? (Very strange to find they're all the same colour and size in the box, even though it's nice to know that Charles and Camilla have been looking after the girls and collecting the eggs.) Tomorrow I have an order to collect neck of lamb from a small local farm 1/4mile away, where you can see the animals born and living out in the field, fed only on grass, and know they've been sent to a humane slaughterhouse 2 miles away for minimal trauma. Ethically sourced lamb stew with lots of veg will be a change from our mainly vegetarian diet, with some over for the freezer. Miles away from the horrible conditions Margaid reports on here.

Same here our meat comes from our neighbour, and go to a local small slaughter house. OH has seen them born, fed them, knows they are wandering about feeding outside, then when they come in over winter, they are kept clean and well cared for. Plus you get cuts of meat that you never see in the supermarket these days
Cockerels don't go to waste either as they are reared for the table.
