RSPCA Standards - Meat Chickens

The RSPCA has developed standards for meat chickens (also known as broilers) that ensure good welfare by focussing on the housing conditions that affect bird welfare.

RSPCA Standards provide birds with environmental enrichment to peck, a longer dark period so they can rest properly, perches and sufficient space to move freely, along with well managed litter.

Note: On rare occasions, an exemption to a specific standard (on a particular site) may be allowed, where the RSPCA believes animal welfare is not compromised.
