Due to their overgrown size and the speed at which they are raised, many will suffer:
Overworked hearts and lungs
Wounds including skin sores and burns
They have no chance to behave as they would naturally. No choice but to sit or stand in their own waste, before being slaughtered at as young as just five weeks old.
38 day old broiler (meat) chickens in caged systems.
Change for chickens now
Together we can change this.
The petition is now closed, and over 500,000 people from 10 countries signed up. Thank you. We are challenging KFC to commit to only buying slower growing birds that have more natural light and space to keep them healthy and active. This commitment can improve the lives of the billions of chickens.
