THE gap between poor people and chickens is at its narrowest since 1945, according to a major international report.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development said Britian's domestic fowl are enjoying their highest standard of living since families kept backyard hens to ward off Nazis.
The OECD revealed many chickens are now enjoying better living conditions than people in the east end of Glasgow or some of the mankier parts of Leeds.
Report author Tom Logan said: "A lot of chickens don't feel better off because they read magazines like Hello and see lots of humans who aren't scraping bugs out of the ground and living in their own shit."
But the report says the gap between chickens and rich people remains one of the widest in the developed world.
Mr Logan added: "More chickens are being eaten by more rich people, often in some sort of jus. The inequality gap doesn't really get much wider than that.
"Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall have done a lot, but many chickens still feel that not enough poor people are being throttled and then roasted with garlic.
"I guess we'll just have to wait for the next series of River Cottage."
