Sumary of The £3 chicken: how much should we actually be paying for the nation’s favourite meat?:

  • A giant metal shed in Somerset is alive with the chirps of more than 17,000 three-day-old chicks.
  • Chicks climb over our boots, pecking at everything in search of food.
  • The couple took over and grew Karen’s father’s chicken farm not far from the Quantock Hills.
  • The chicks arrived two days ago in a lorry from a huge hatchery.
  • The broilers, as meat chickens are known (“layers” lay eggs), will then be trucked to a poultry processor and on to customers including Sainsbury’s.
  • Yet in the UK we eat 17,000 chickens – the number I’m looking at in this one shed – every nine minutes.
