A spectacular staging to alert people to the practices of a large group. Wednesday April 24, 2024, in the morning, three inflatable chickens from 11 meters wide by 5 high will be trained Place de la Bourse in Paris (2nd). In a press release sent to Paris newsthe animal rights association L214 explains that it wants to denounce “the ravages of genetic selection on the bodies of chickens sold” by three major brands : The Gaul, Marie and Maître CoQ.

A Chicken Named Ross

The location was obviously not chosen at random: it refers to the “record turnover of 6 billion euros of the LDC group [actionnaire des trois marques] which targets 560 million euros in profits, based among other things on chicken breeding methods particularly intensive,” explains L214.

And continues: “The ‘Ross 308’ strain of chickens, obtained by extensive genetic selection, causes chickens to grow abnormally quickly (…) The birds resulting from this unrestrained genetic selection suffer from numerous pathologies (…) The LDC group still uses the Ross 308 strain, while 120 French companies have already committed to turning away from it. »

One of the three chickens was named Ross. This Wednesday, he will then be the narrator of a video revealing new investigative images from the association, in which “he will describe the living conditions of his peers”. This will be hosted and dubbed by the actor and comedian Raphaël Mezrahi.
