Chicken stew? :shock:

Voted cold, because the low prices Tescos are paying for these chickens (as little as 5p a chicken) is putting farmers under pressure financially meaning worse quality of life for the chickens. Don't buy these.

Voted red hot.

Mmmm, intensively farmed chickeny goodness. No thanks.

Its been this price for ages. I think these are on a permanent bogof.

This type of low-cost meat is dreadful for the animals and your insides. COLD.

its actually 1p per chicken to the farmers. Nice profit margin. Hot for price but I wouldnt touch these having seen how the chickens in battery farms live not to mention the amount of chemicals / hormones they are fed in their short lives.

because they have 100,000+ in each barn and replenish them every 6 weeks. They just get fed growth hormones and cannot move at all (25 per square metre).

I try to buy free range chicken but can be expensive. I would never dream of eating anything but free range eggs as the price difference isnt so great and they really do taste so much better.

As for chicken mcnuggets.......................they are just made from ground down carcasses and skin :w00t:

Chicken ready meals are mainly poor standard too as imported chicken meat is imported from Brazil & Thailand where there are no standards whatsoever.

HFW reckons intensively farmed chickens can sell for a profit to the producer of little as 3p a bird. I can't see how they SELL for 1p.

Just go to your local battery farm. They often sell direct to the public for a bulk purchase.

Voted hot!

Cool just gotta build me a CO2 chamber to euthanase them in first!

Debate about intensive farming aside this is a good price, I've just paid £4 for the same items in Asda with no clubcard points. Voted hot!

A lot of posters here are missing a point. These chickens are surplus to the farmer's requirements.

They are purely egg producers and the farmer mainly wants to get them out of his sheds and a new lot in as quickly as possible. ANY money he receives for these worthless (to him) birds is a bonus.

Speaking from a food perspective, I would say these would make a great soup when boiled up with some hearty vegetables.

Love chicken especially Free-Range Organic Corn Feed but quite expensive.

Before you buy these...read this from the Chicken out website.......

"Poultry scientists have bred chickens which grow fast. As they grow, their living space – smaller than an A4 piece of paper for each bird – gets more and more cramped as they near the end of their short lives. With around 17 birds packed into each square metre they have barely enough space to walk, preen themselves, stretch their wings or even turn around.

Such cramped conditions and rapid growth cause severe welfare problems. Chronic lameness is common – one third of chickens have difficulty walking without pain. The stress on their hearts and lungs can cause heart failure. About 5% die or have to be culled prematurely.

A typical chicken shed holds 40,000 birds…

They never set foot outside or see natural light…

They feed around the clock - with as little as one hour of darkness for every 24 hour period.

It’s not nice – but it’s certainly cheap.

And THAT is how Tesco can afford to offer you two whole birds for a fiver…

Or how Asda can sell a whole fresh British chicken for £2."

Some free range conditions are worse than batteries.

Why do they need all these things ??? :? After their '(short) lives' they are hung up by the feet, electric stunned, have their throats cut, are bled then mechanically plucked, evicerated, packed sold and finally EATEN by us. :thumbsup:

ALL chickens end up this way Free range or not. Eat or not your choice :thinking: . Do you feel sorry for the pork chops or beef steaks in Tesco too ??? :whistling:

Oh what a great point! The T-shirt I'm wearing was made by an 8yo working in a factory in Asia. They might work for more than 12 hours a day and, if they're lucky, will only get lashed 10 times. Good times.

That ASIDE, it cost £0.50!! What a bargain!! Who wants one? or three? Eh? Eh? :shock:

Honestly...

People moan about the price of stuff going up, and then when they make it cheaper, people STILL moan, get rid off all these battery hens, and triple the price of all chicken products. Is that what you want?

I dont think people were moaning about the price. I certainly wasn't and did not vote hot or cold.

I was just trying to raise awareness of animal suffering. That's no bad thing in my book :thumbsup:

You all act as if we need chicken, it's hardly a necessary or healthy option any more.

The fat content of intensively farmed chickens is quite awsome due to the way they are "grown", they typically consist of well over 20% fat which is quite frightening. Intensively farmed chichen is no longer a healthy option .....

From the Sunday Times April 3rd 2005:
"The study by the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition at London Metropolitan University compared samples of chicken analysed over the past 35 years. They found that a chicken contained 8.6 grams of fat per 100 grams in 1970, compared with 22.8 grams in a supermarket bird in 2004. Over the same period, the amount of protein fell by more than 30% from 24.3 grams per 100 grams to 16.5. For the first time since records began in 1870, a typical chicken now has more fat than protein"

That is quite scary.

So most chickens (95%) are actually mutated.

I'll pay the little extra for corn fed organic thanks.
