Unlike in the UK and Europe, there are no minimum space requirements for breeding chickens in the US.
America also does not have any rules governing lighting levels in the sheds and, crucially, its farms have no maximum allowed level of ammonia, which indicates how much urine and faecal matter is present.
Yet in the US – as in Britain – consumer demand for chicken continues to grow.
Nine billion chickens were slaughtered in the US last year.
However, the US poultry industry maintains that its birds are healthier than ever.The possibility of US chickens being sold in Britain after a post-Brexit trade deal sparked a huge Cabinet row, with Environment Secretary Michael Gove speaking out against the move while Trade Secretary Liam Fox insisted the chlorine-rinsed meat was safe.Dr Fox, who met leading politicians and businessmen in the US last week, sparked fury from the public and other Ministers after he signalled he would be in favour of dropping the EU's ban on importing chicken from the US if it proved to be a barrier to securing a post-Brexit trade deal with the US.A less efficient farmer will have money deducted from his base pay.Critics say this system fosters unhygienic practices because it forces poultry farmers to cut corners on animal welfare to maximise their income per flock.
