Clare Druce co-founded Chickens’ Lib, now know as the Farm Animal Welfare Network (FAWN), in the early 1970’s. Her book Chicken and Egg: Who Pays the Price? (Green Print, 1989) highlighted the cruelties inherent in battery egg and broiler chicken production and drew attention to the hazards to human health from food poisoning, and reckless overuse of antibiotics on farms.

Clare has produced a wide range of literature, mainly on modern poultry production, and has been active in exposing the suffering within the turkey, duck, quail and gamebird rearing industries. FAWN, of which she is currently Director, has strong links worldwide, and its views are now sought by the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (formerly the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) when farm animal legislation is under review.
