38 necius [Here's the guidelines]( > By 2026, we will require our suppliers to meet the following requirements for 100% of the [fresh, frozen, and processed] chicken in our supply chain: > Comply with all EU animal welfare laws and regulations, regardless of the country of production. > Implement a maximum stocking density of 30kg/m2 or less. Thinning is discouraged and if practiced must be limited to one thin per flock. > Adopt breeds that demonstrate higher welfare outcomes: either the following breeds, Hubbard JA757, 787, 957, or 987, Rambler Ranger, Ranger Classic, and Ranger Gold, or others that meet the criteria of the RSPCA Broiler Breed Welfare Assessment Protocol. > Meet improved environmental standards including: >- At least 50 lux of light, including natural light. >- At least two metres of usable perch space, and two pecking substrates, per 1,000 birds. >- On air quality, at least the requirements of Annex 2.3 of the EU broiler directive, regardless of stocking density. >- No cages or multi-tier systems. > Adopt controlled atmospheric stunning using inert gas or multi-phase systems, or effective electrical stunning without live inversion. > Demonstrate compliance with the above standards via third-party auditing and annual public reporting on progress towards this commitment. The "higher standards" described in that letter may be better than what's happening now, but it'll still be hell for the birds.
48 0xD153A53 Just yesterday I was reading a scholarly article on the intelligence of chickens...Actually pretty fascinating, given that we assume they're pretty stupid birds. For instance, chickens are able to engage in complex thinking with respect to time and reward size. For example, chickens are able to delay a behaviour if a larger reward is expected *later*. This is a level of complex thinking that takes humans until about the age of 4 to get a handle on.
4 badassmthrfkr >Fast food chain McDonald’s, traditionally a beef-focused business, now sells more chicken than beef I found that very surprising: Is it because of the nuggets?

8 evolvedude As a teenager I worked as a duck catcher in one of those massive warehouses in the uk. The shit I saw people do to those ducks still still bothers me. Always wondered why there was no welfare group monitoring those places. I hope this makes a difference.
