That's beyond funny.

That's why I hunt for our meat. No ethics in killing a caged animal. Kill and eat them as it was always meant to be.

I still stand by my beliefs. we eat meat. we kill animals for food. just think cost wise at the amount of profit you would lose, if you bought a cage for each chicken. Not only that, they would have to be up to the whiners standards. So once you've got each chicken a 6x6 cell, in a warehouse, in the Bahamas, you have to think about the space needed to house all of the product. Just so we can chop off it's head, and put it into a kid's meal that some lillte turd dosn't finish. either way the chickens are damned to slaughter. why waste money on commodities they'll never appreciate because they've never used them.

it's all about mass production really. that's where it gets messy. i don't eat meat and i don't think it's necessary for most of america. it's a smart alternative and generally meat eaters throw big baby fits when the topic even comes up. it's like their manhood is challenged or something. kind of like people who think it's american and macho to drive a hummer and could care less about the environment or or just plain effeciency. just because you can doesn't make you more patriotic. remember when oprah got on a veggie kick and suggested alternatives and the whole meat industry threw a fit! don't stop the money flow. don't stop the craze and don't mess with texas!

I agree it's sad to look at, but perhaps a necessary evil with all the people needing to be fed in the world. Having said that, why not ship those "male chicks" to some third world country where they can be grown and eaten. How much food goes to waste in our Western world when whole countries starve?
On a side note, with this going on why so much hoopla over the seal hunt?

Being a vegan, vegetarian, meat-eater or protein diet nut is a personal choice. There are down sides to any diet ... a totally vegan diet is lacking in some nutrients but can be healthier than a meat-heavy diet. Surprisingly any one choice does not make a person better, smarter or more divine. It just makes them different.
Then why not eat meat!!!
