oh bet iv mist it again now have i? il go and check
i like watching hugh with the posh name

Hugh Plumley Whittingbasket seems to think its viable to supply all the country with its chickeny needs by keeping them in wide open spaces. Id quite like to know where all the room is to come from and how the farmers would be expected to make a profit when theyd need a piece of land the size of wales to let the little sods roam about in just before they get massacred.

I was shocked at how poorly Tesco's PR dealt with the whole thing especially the 'media' woman.

I thought a company the size of Tesco's would have used the whole thing as a good PR exercise and free advertising and come out of it smelling like roses whilst carrying continuing to act however the hell they liked.

Instead in my mind at least Co-op and Sainsbury's came out as ethical and premium companies (even though they'd made very little change), whilst tesco came out as cheap netto, asda standard.

I don't believe you. I think you just want to be loved


amirite?

I missed the programme and viewed it via channel 4's catchup facility.
I am from a vastly different background to Hugh FW but find myself agreeing with many of his principles. A problem for Hugh is that many people dont think or dont want to think of food animals as living beings. The issue is blocked out. Once you start thinking about this it raises a whole lot of other points that many do not want to consider. So unfortunately Hugh will have a harder time to convince cash strapped consumers to be prepared to pay more for any animal product without also being able to show them that buying cheaper means they are losing out in some way.
If consumers felt they were losing out nutrionally in some way, which indeed they may be, there might be a greater clamour for conditions to improve but this time led by the public at large.
There will always be some who really cannot in any circumstances afford to pay more. I believe some of those who think this is the case though, are those who are spending in other areas and could potentially redirect some of their spending if it was deemed appropriate. It is never popular however to ask somebody to pay more than they believe they need to. It will not get any easier now that we are in a tougher economic climate.
All supermarkets are first and foremost businesses. They are not friends of farmers or consumers. The welfare of animals or consumers is not something that concerns supermarkets in general.
Whatever your personal attitudes towards Hugh FW, he has certainly got the industry and many of the public debating the issue. It may be uncomfortable for some but I believe it is a good thing. There are too many areas of the food industry where standards are really not high enough, or corners are cut in order to satisfy accountants.

Well said!

i support the Battery Hen Welfare Trust

(see my avatar thread) ;-)

they re-home battery hens when they are sent to slaughter at 72 weeks old ... i wish more people would consider this ... they make lovely pets and can live for 4/5 years
you should see the stories of the hens rehomed its so heart warming and though not solving the initial problem does make a massive difference to the lives of thousands of hens while its being debated

im saving for my hen coop atm ... will have my own!! in a few weeks hopefully :-D :-D

I would do that as well if my personal circumstances allowed for it. Have to think ahead though. If ever away from home who would be prepared to feed etc

i know its not practical for everyone but i have pets anyway so 6 more chickens isnt going to make much odds

Gotta make coop fox proof which can be easier than said if you have foxes locally.
I know chickens will eat worms. Do thay eat slugs?
Heard some chickens can have an attitude (Ninja chickens - to be dealt with with care).

My doggies would eat them thats if MrFoxy didnt get to them first!!

im not a chicken expert lol best to visit the site if you have questions :thumbsup:

i do have foxes btw as i have a rail way line at the bottom of the garden

but i have had rabbits for years with no problems ... the coop will be built on the same idea with a ramp for them to run up into it, and they will be locked up at night ... i also have a motion censor light which seems to discourage the foxes ... there are ways round it if you really want chickens
but i would ask questions from the people on the site as they know more than me x
