Around 60 billion chickens are reared for meat each year with 40 billion of these chickens being raised in huge, crowded sheds or cramped cages. Many of the chickens actually live in a space smaller than a A4 piece of paper.
A factory farmed chicken lives on an average of 42 days to 12 weeks instead of up to 10 years. This means that meat chickens are still chicks when they are slaughtered and they are bred to grow unnaturally fast. They are kept in dismal conditions and suffer painful heart, skin, lung and bone problems as well as stress.
Around 2,000 meat chickens are slaughtered every second around the world.

The Better Chicken Commitment is a set of criteria for improving the lives of chicken's raised for meat. These standards were agreed by a group of leading animal protection organisations such as RSPCA, Compassion in World Farming, World Animal Protection and The Humane League UK in 2018.

Only five percent of chicken on supermarket shelves meets the Better Chicken Commitment. 
Waitrose and Marks and Spencer's are committed to meeting the Better Chicken Commitment on all of their own brand chicken by 2026. However, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, Sainsbury, Asda and Morrisons are still yet to fully commit.

It is time for our local supermarkets and fast food restaurants to back better standards for chickens and to start making a difference!
Sign this petition to demand change for chickens.
