What fun in this chicken's paradise! :)
The chicken in industrial cages never see any sun and live packed together. They get crippled feet. Every hen has less space than a sheet of writing paper.
Adorable hens May!, you live in a world of wonder
Yes, Edmundo, those are very lucky hens! People in towns actually never see a hen in her natural surrounding! :)
They really have a nice place to live, and I think, they just might lay better eggs than the factory hens.
If you'd ever eat one of those eggs, you won't eat any others again. :)
BE CAREFUL MAY, SOME KIND OF **SPAM* IS AROUND, DON'T CLICK THE LINK IF YOU DON`T KNOW THE ONE WHO SENT THE MESSAGE
We have a TV chef May, who is at war with the Super Markets,over the way they rear the chickens, and the photos he shows are horrifying, they even debeak the chicks so they can,t peck. I can easily finish 1/2 a chicken, but I remember when a chicken could feed a family and no one left the table hungry. But part of the reason is the modern woman! About 20 years ago I was drinking in a pub with a friend,and a chap came up to him and asked if he wanted his usual, my pal handed him 15 pence ( the price of a pint).
He told me when the pub closed he would get a newly killed chicken in a paper bag. I order one as well( a nice wee surprise for the Wife) when I got home ,eventually, I handed over her present, and she responded with a screech of rage, because the chicken still had a head ,legs and a full suit of feathers. My wife had never seen a chicken like, hers came ready to cook wrapped in celluloid, I dumped it in the bin, LOL cheers scally.
LOL, Scally! Oh, how well I understand your wife! :( If I had a husband, who came from the pub eventually with a strangled or run over chicken wrapped up in an old newspaper expecting me to pluck, clean and prepare it, I don't think I would be happy either. :D
When I was a child, we used to have about 6 hens for the eggs and once a year for young chicken. Every half year we had chicken soup, when the hens got about 5 years, Some neighbour killed the poor animal (because my father wouldn't do it) and my mother prepared it - the hens I used to feed. You understand? ;) I never ate any chickens in all my life. Cheers, May
