Battery quail

Today's Guardian carries a story about the rearing of "game" birds for the marketplace in battery conditions similar to those used to raise chickens and turkeys. Will this mean that we will soon see free range pheasants and quail on the supermarket shelves?

(The article certainly didn't give me an appetite for these birds but it did give me an idea of places for "I'm a Big" Dick Cheney to go hunting the next time he visits this green and pleasant land.)
