Change for chickens
Too often the reality behind the world’s favourite meat is unacceptable suffering. Along with over half a million of you, we demanded action from KFC which create the conditions for this cruelty.
60 billion chickens are raised for global consumption each year. Two thirds of them live in overcrowded sheds or cages often with no natural light or fresh air, unable to peck or spread their wings.
Due to their overgrown size and the speed at which they are raised, many will suffer:
- painful lameness
- overworked hearts and lungs
- wounds including skin sores and burns
They have no chance to behave as they would naturally. No choice but to sit or stand in their own waste, before being slaughtered at as young as just five weeks.
