“Chicken Wings” Sad Reality

More than 1.23 billion wing portions will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend in 2013, according to the National Chicken Council’s 2013 Wing Report.

Please visit 1.2 billion chicken wings eaten during US super bowl:

Sadly, not many people think about what “chicken wings” really are: the wings (bone and flesh) of sentient beings, who suffer unimaginable pain and ultimately die so people may enjoy the very transient taste of eating them. It’s important to note that chickens don’t give their wings to humans; instead, they are stolen from them in brutal ways.

Our loving Creator gave chickens their wings so they may use them for their own purpose, such as to fly short distances, help propel them into the air so they can reach a perch, or to snag a tasty looking seed or fruit off a branch; a mother hen will use her wings to cover and protect her chicks, a chicken claiming his/her space will puff up and flap in place, and a rooster who is herding hens will drop one wing toward them and strut. When we see how magnificent these creatures are, we are more inclined to respect their bodies and allow them to live and enjoy their lives.
