I wasn't quite sure where to post this so moderators please feel free to move it to it's rightful place if need be.

As one person who loves seeing her little ladies flouncing round the garden, standing on my fork when I am trying to dig, and take great pleasure from them, I was very pleased to received the following email.

Chicken Out! - Campaign for a free range future

Great news!

Yesterday the EU Council of Agriculture Ministers rejected Poland's attempt to delay the Europe-wide ban on barren battery cages. As a result, the ban is still due to come into force as planned in 2012.

Thank you to the 10,214 dedicated supporters who lobbied the UK government by sending emails, post cards and letters - once again, you have shown that we can get things done for farm animals when speaking with a united voice. This latest campaign also reiterates the need to be vigilant about the threats that remain, even when victories such as the forthcoming battery cage ban have been gained. Whatever the challenge, Chicken Out! and Compassion in World Farming will continue to take decisive action until the battery cage ban is fully implemented across Europe.

Thank you for your support; we share this victory with you.

As the caretaker of some very pampered chickens, I thought I would share this news.

Take care
