http://www.smh.com.au/news/entertainment/labelling/2009/11/10/1257615027124.html

well...at least the lying is being recognised, i suppose  confused

Hmm definitely! I didn't even realize some of that stuff (like the fact that bred free range meant that they only spent the first few weeks of life with some kind of freedom).

Chickens are only alive for a few weeks anyway before they are killed!

i know right?!  when i was younger (15/16), my little sister and i would bake a lot of cakes and we always bought the "free range" eggs because we figured the chickens got to run around and live happy lives.  i'm kind of torn between whether we should spoil that notion for little kids and let them know what's going on or spare them the horror of battery farming...

I saw on a cosmetic product, "this finished product has not been tested on animals." Of course that meant the individual ingredients may well have been.

Yes its definitely a bad thing they're only alive a few weeks.  But I also doubt that many would actually make it much beyond that with the way they are bred and the terrible conditions they are kept in.  In fact a lot of them don't even make it that long as they're so crippled they can't reach water or food.  I doubt many people realise that the chicken they're eating is actually a 6-8 week old baby.
