Factory Farming: 'Meat' Chickens
Chicken is one of the cheapest and most popular meats in New Zealand. Once reserved for festive occasions such as birthdays and Christmas, chicken is now consumed at an annual rate of over 37kg per person.
However the treatment of the chickens reared for meat is said to be an example of the most extreme kind of cruelty that can be inflicted on an animal by humans, and it is happening right here in New Zealand.
- Make a stand when you shop! Avoid chicken products.
