Chickens going cheap

At the end of Hugh and Jamie's week of programmes highlighting the plight of the humble meat chicken there was a faint whiff of optimism. A good chunk of the supermarkets gave indications of targets for reduction or eradication of products that didn't at least meet the RSPCA's Freedom Food standard.
Today's news about Tesco shows that there is still a long way to go. The government has stepped in to ensure that all egg production will have to conform to a minimum welfare standard, perhaps it is time they did the same for meat birds.
