When "Free-Range" is not "Free-Range"

From the Guardian this morning:
"Margaret Beckett, the environment secretary, has announced further emergency measures to the House of Commons to control the spread of avian flu to Britain. She said the government was seriously considering ordering free range poultry farmers to lock their chickens indoors to avoid infection from wild migrating birds. It is unclear whether farmers who are forced to shut their hens and chickens indoors will be able to keep their free range status."
