This is a clip taken from the ‘Nigel and Adams Farm Kitchen’ TV series which basically shows us how much room our chickens have to grow, how much access to light and what food they eat.
Watch the video for full information but basically:
A “normal” chicken has 15 birds per square meter.
A “RSPCA” chicken has 13 birds per square meter.
A “‘free range” chicken has 1 square meter to it’s self, it gets to spend around half of it’s life with access to outdoors.
A “organic” bird has 2.5 square meters to it’s self, it gets to spend around a third of it’s life outdoors.
Care about the animal or genuinely how the meat your eating is reared then buy free range and if you can afford it, Organic. Like he says in the clip though, maybe we should eat less meat and buy solely Organic.
I’ve posted this so the customer can make a more informed decision, the choice is completely yours!
