While Hattie Ellis was writing Planet Chicken,  she asked to meet me and we had a nice chat in the café of the British Library. What we discussed was subsequently reflected in parts of her book, which examines the many terrible ways in which chickens and hens are treated in intensive farming systems.
Hattie and her publisher Sceptre have kindly given permission for the relevant pages of Planet Chicken to be made available to visitors to the AnimalWelfareAndTrade site.

If you find these excerpts interesting and want to read more, you can order Planet Chicken through bookshops or online.
