Re: Battery hen liberated from Mainland Poultry during demonstra

farmers work hard to ensure that all nzers have the opportunity to consume top quality food produce .A lot of the meat products go to the take aways that ignorant greedy townies are so fond of.I suggest people should pay a little more attention to the processes animals need to go through to reach there shiny varnished table tops or else grow and slaughter there own livestock to satisfy there ferocious appetites.
