Poor chickens is that all there worth now

You deserve better than this unethical poor quality meat. If you are going …You deserve better than this unethical poor quality meat. If you are going to extinguish a life for your Sunday roast you may as well do so knowing the animal had some resemblance of a ‘life’ and have a substantially more flavor some meal.If you are on the breadline and struggling financially I understand this has its place but for anyone with even a small amount of expendable money you should know better than eating this filth



The farmer has already been paid or has a contract. The price in store usually has very little to do with what the farmer gets. They can’t say we’re having a half price deal on so we’re giving you far less. People would go out of business, it’s a loss leader to generate footfall and increase brand awareness I.e marketing.

UK food standards and even basic UK welfare standards are the some of the highest in the world, even the EU tends to copy them , so calling cheap food filth is simply virtue signalling in my opinion. There is nothing wrong with this at half price or double price.

What a time to be alive. Cheap, plentiful food for everyone but heaven forbid you eat anything that isn’t approved. If it’s cheap there simply must be something wrong with it. It must be dirty or low quality and only the poor can be excused for eating such filth.

And some people still can’t get over the fact that some people choose to eat meat and some don’t.

Can't imagine how they must have grown to be at that price?!!
‘Our Northern Irish chickens are reared by trusted farmers in barns with natural daylight and bales’ sounds like every chickens dream. I know it’s cheap guys but please just stop and think about what you’re encouraging before you buy.

If the farmer does not like what he gets for his produce he can increase the price, if he doesn't sell enough he may need to go into a different line of business. It is called supply and demand.

How do you judge the conditions of a chickens upbringing just by the price it is sold for?
Its a loss leader..... Then they screw you when you add anything else to your basket.
Not a veggie kind of saddens me this is what a chickens life is worth from egg to plate.
İt's good for my puppies

It says on the site from the 18th to the 20th but not all stores are participating.
Excellent price but I made the switch to free range chicken. I doubt there's a massive amount difference in the welfare of the chicken but it tastes a lot better!
To everyone preaching about the welfare of chicken etc, remember this.... Organic and free range only accommodate on single digit numbers of demand for chicken... Therefore the market demands cheap chicken and most people including myself do not care, or more accurately put not going to pay a premium for better looked after chicken... So don't use this forum as a place to preach your ideals here no matter how strongly you feel.... If you want free range organic then go ahead and pay for it, don't come here complaining about this great deal.

Yes, that's exactly how supermarkets work, it's not to lure you in and buy other stuff too.
Great to dig into the soil, bring on your plants and fruit/ veg etc.

In the old days people used to dig in mackerel, because it was so abundant.

Full price now, that lasted long!!
The M@S one is much jucier and organically sourced. It's also bigger.

I'm going to allow this one.

Not voting either way.
Going to get 1o of these bad boys, spatchcock them and enjoy on my bbq. Healthy food, can't beat it. Meat is meat. Enjoy it.

Let them be. I get upset by their drama. Choose what you like to eat.
If only hotukdeals was based on best price rather than opinions. Should only be able to vote cold if you can provide a link showing comparable item cheaper
Has anyone seen this offer in store today? As on the other drumstick/thigh offer thread people are saying price was only 1/2 price if ordered online yesterday for delivery today & not reduced in store? :/
