Americans Support More Humane Methods Of Raising Chickens For Food

August 13, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Eighty-three percent of Americans say they want food companies to reduce “the suffering” of chickens raised for food, according to a poll. Americans oppose growing chickens so quickly they can’t bear their own weight; oppose live-shackle slaughter; and oppose extreme crowding in cages. They support keeping chicken litter clean and providing environmental enrichment, such as straw bales and pecking objects. NRG Research Group singled out Tyson Foods for censure, noting that its poultry-raising standards “fail to adequately address the most pressing chicken welfare issues.” [Image Credit: © Mercy for Animals ]
