    I only buy British and American... Just like my chicken and iPhone pro.
    Sadly you'll never know where the chicken comes from. I remember when my mate worked in chicken plant and they packed polish chicken with labels "British chicken". And it was made in the UK - semiproducts - chicken, tray, wrap - one British product - packed chicken...

    A good price, but can only imagine the life the bird had to be sold £3.50
    It's a very short life. Chickens can live for six or more years under natural conditions. However those used in intensive farming will commonly be slaughtered before they reach six weeks old. Free-range broilers will usually be slaughtered at 8 weeks old and organic broilers at around 12 weeks old.
