Leeds-based supermarket giants Asda have issued a statement saying they do not sell any battery produced chicken after a TV blast by Jamie Oliver.
The Jamie's School Dinners chef led a television investigation into the grim lives of the chickens that end up in supermarkets.
Today the Asda spokesman said: "All our standard fresh Asda chicken is British and clearly labelled with the little Red Tractor logo guaranteeing it meets strict farm assurance standards. They are reared in barns that provide warm, dry housing with straw or wood shavings bedding, heating and fresh air controlled by ventilation systems, and have full access to food and fresh drinking water.
"We also sell free-range and organic chickens, offering an extensive range to meet the palates and pockets of all our customers."
