Hi guys,
I am writing a poem for a competition. It is basically going to be a "free range" farm seen from different points of veiw, animal and human and the suffering of a chicken.
I am talking about a free-range farm that is not actually free-range.
So, I have a few questions, (But the more info the better!)
To be free-range do the chickens have to be able to go outside?
How much room per chicken is the minimum?
Health care?
Living conditions?
Practices? (De beaking?)
Lighting?
And if anyone has actually been in a "Free-range" chicken farm can you describe the experience?
And if anyone knows where to find "free-range" chicken farm footage?
Also information about chickens
Normal behaviours?
Nerotic behaviours?
Intelligence (Like how many faces do they recognise)?
Any other chicken facts please.
Thank you!!
I will post it when I finish it!

Free range chickens do not have to be outside
They usually do debeak them
If in a more roomy confinement, chickens can establish a proper pecking order and remember up to 50 fellow birds
