    How about some great Aussie Biotec develop a drug we can inject the eggs with so the chickens just drop dead after 8 weeks or however long it is these useless creatures (except as a food source) live for now days.

    I would be buying.....

    PEOPLE for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sued KFC Corp today, claiming the US fast food giant was misleading the public by denying that it mistreats hundreds of millions of chickens headed for its fast food restaurants each year.

    The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claims more than 700 million chickens slaughtered each year for KFC chicken restaurants "often endure suffering, often intense, for most, or all, of their lives".

    The lawsuit is the culmination of a six month campaign waged by PETA against KFC and its parent company, Yum! Brands Inc to force the fast food company to adopt standards designed to improve the existence of the chickens and slaughter them more humanely.

    PETA alleges that since its campaign began, KFC has misled the public with press releases and information posted on its website.

    The organisation takes issue with KFC's claim, for instance, that it prohibits its suppliers from using "growth-promoting substances," a claim PETA says is "blatantly false".

    KFC has said it has improved the standards used by its suppliers, including forming an Animal Welfare Advisory Council and making unannounced inspections of its poultry facilities.

    KFC said today it had not yet seen the lawsuit, but defended its actions, calling the lawsuit "one in a continuing series of publicity stunts".

    "We stand by our information as truthful and accurate," the company said. "KFC is committed to the wellbeing and humane treatment of poultry."

    Shares in Yum Brands rose US45 cents to $US30.40 each overnight on the New York Stock Exchange.
