Eurotunnel & Brittany Ferry bosses remain silent!
This week and every week through April, May, June & July tens of thousands of day old chicks and ready to hatch eggs will travel from French farms to the UK. In total the number will run into the millions. In 2015 it was 15 million, around half of all the game birds released. The ferry companies have now refused to transport live chicks, but continue to transport eggs (except P&O who to their credit have now said they will not transport either).
Eurotunnel are carrying both chicks and hatching eggs, over a week ago they said they were unaware and would investigate, they’ve had a week and they’ve said nothing except “no comment”.
Perhaps when their bosses start to recieve mail at their homes, it may make them reconsider their tardy attitude. Please for the sake of the millions of birds, write to the bosses in the first instance, or even better go and knock on their doors and ask them face to face why they are continuing to take money from French game farmers, who are raising birds in conditions that would be illegal in the UK.
