RSPCA: Statement on duck bathing by British Poultry Council "misleading"

RSPCA respond to the British Poultry Council's response to their earlier comment on ducks

"To bathe is to immerse one’s body in water (Oxford dictionary). The RSPCA believes it is misleading for the British Poultry Council to claim that the Duck Assurance Scheme provides ducks with bathing water when in reality they only insist that farms provide a channel of water that is just a few centimetres wide and few centimetres deep that only allows ducks to get their heads in. It is like going to a hotel which has promised you can have a bath but finding you have just got a handbasin!"
