Anyway, I got a newsletter from Hugh Hairy this morning and while he's happy for the progress (30-50% more "proper chicken" depending on whose figures you look at), he's also disappointed that Tesco hasn't done much about the whole thing. So Hugh has cunningly made sure he's a Tesco shareholder. This means that he can put forward a resolution for the Annual General Meeting. Clever! The resolution is simply asking for that the animals should be treated according to the Tesco's animal welfare standard. Which include
Freedom from Hunger and Thirst
Freedom from Discomfort
Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease
Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour
Freedom from Fear and Distress.
Go Hugh and the chickens!!
