Improve the lives of 1 billion chickens!

1 billion chickens are raised for meat in the UK each year, most of whom live in crowded, filthy sheds and are bred to grow unnaturally fast, suffering debilitating injuries as a result.
It's time for The British Poultry Council (BPC), the UK's national trade group representing the poultry meat industry, to back better standards for chickens. Sign this petition to demand change for chickens and don't forget to opt-in to receive updates and join the fight!
The BPC states that ‘confidence in British food producers is more important than ever’. With that in mind, the BPC should lead the way and encourage British chicken producers to improve their animal welfare practices. It’s time for the BPC to issue a public statement calling on their members, who make up 90% of the UK’s poultry industry, to move their production from the minimum legal requirements to meet the standards of the Better Chicken Commitment. These progressive welfare standards - supported by The Humane League, Compassion in World Farming, World Animal Protection, RSPCA and Four Paws - will eliminate the worst health issues, reduce overcrowding, provide a better living environment and end the worst slaughter practices.
Chickens deserve change, so sign now to demand change for chickens and don't forget to opt-in to receive updates and join the fight.
