Happy hens

The flawed analogy of yesterday comes from Harriet Harman in her evidence to the Commons Treasury select committee inquiry into Sex(ism) in the City: "At the moment, if you buy an egg in a supermarket, you can tell whether a chicken has been happy in its life but you can't actually be able to know whether or not the employees in that company are being treated equally and fairly."

How can you tell if the chicken is happy? Did someone do a survey?

And is happiness relative to productivity?

Hi KL & Ellee - do you think battery hens are treated more equally than their free-range friends?
