Chicken run

(article, Caroline Cummins)

So British farmer, chef, and author Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, of River Cottage fame, has a new television show on Britain's Channel 4. Titled "Hugh's Chicken Run," the show documents Fearnley-Whittingstall's attempt to convince Britons to eat better chicken. 

The gimmick? Hughie, the small-farms advocate, sets up his own CAFO (confined animal feeding operation) for chickens, to show how all that cheap supermarket chicken is actually produced. It's all part of Fearnley-Whittingstall's campaign to get consumers to "chicken out" of buying cheap chicken.

Channel 4's website shows clips from "Hugh's Chicken Run," or there's this YouTube video that you can chick, er, check out:
