I have this concern.

I had quite an addiction to the Chicken Cottage , in Lower Marsh, BBQ wings. Every wing had the bone snapped in two, I became a little uneasy about it and stopped buying them (I should really have looked further into it).
Mrs b has been buying the frozen Southern Fried wings from Tesco, same thing, all the wings (there's two bits to this, I'm talking about the drumstick bit) are snapped.
I now have this vision of Chickens having their wings snapped and stuck in cages.
I have a feeling I'm a bit behind the times and that this is accepted practise, is it?

I e mailed the RSPCA asking the question, they replied asking me if I could take a couple in as pets! Boring pets but cheap to keep I suppose.

Boroughonian I honestly was under impression that they had banned battery hens? Saw a programme last years about some ladies knitting waistcoats for ex battery hens...

you only need to google to find out the disgusting and cruel practices of poultry farmers.
