The Suffering of Britain's Chickens
WARNING: This video contains footage of dead animals

'Broiler' chickens, or chickens reared for meat, continue to suffer appalling conditions on farms all over the UK. This video and the accompanying factsheet 'The suffering of "broiler" chickens' - available at - reveal just some of the misery they must endure everyday to meet Britain's growing demand for chicken meat.

The footage was filmed in March 2013 at three farms owned by members of the National Farmers Union Poultry Board: P D Hook Ltd, Galley Hill Farm and Uphouse Farm.
