I would like to express a very big thank thank you to Hugh Fearnley-Whitting-stall and Channel 4 for their exposure of the distressing reality of how we have been able to purchase cheap poultry from our supermarkets over the last few years.How interesting that some of the people who said they would continue to purchase poultry reared in this cruel way because they were on a "tight budget" could obviously afford to pay £5 pounds or more for a pack of cigarettes - but could not find £5 to buy a chicken that had been reared enjoying good animal husbandry.Sonia KinchHarepath RoadSeaton
