Hattie Ellis's compassionate condemnation, Planet Chicken, exposes the atrocious practices of modern poultry farming, says Paul Levy. Hattie Ellis was moved to write this diatribe about our cheapest form of protein by the delicious smell of roast chicken emanating from the cafe in her local supermarket, which almost made her gag when she saw the aisle 13 freezer unit with its bits of chicken packaged like bricks and the sign saying 'CAGE'. First the chicken, then the egg. By next year, Burger King, the second-largest fast-food chain, will source 5 per cent of its eggs from 'cage-free' hens - that amounts to 18,000,000kg of eggs in North America.
On Planet Chicken pb: "Ellis's book provides some of the meat behind the celebrity crusades. This book is packed full of information about chickens and their history and journey through to the factory farm. However, as a vegan I was hoping that there would be a better outcome than to simply "go free range!" In fact I found the chapter in which the author talks about extracting the legs and how to cook the chicken quite disturbing! Im sure they'd be much happier if we refrained from eating them altogether.
