Animals as Food
Comments by Bianca - 27 Oct 2009

I realize how some chicken farms keep their chickens is not the ideal way, and not very healthy, for people or the chickens, but is there anything wrong with raising chickens in a healthier way?

Several of my friends have chickens---they keep them in their coops, which have runs, and they are let out when their owners are around. They get food, clean water and space to move. They're raised them for meat and eggs. Is there something wrong with this practice?

Chicken eggs don't go anywhere or do anything; considering that when the hens are kept separate from the roosters, the eggs are infertile; they are Not chicks. So what's wrong with eating them?
And for the meat birds, most of them are roosters--it is pointless to keep dozens of roosters.

I'd also like to know what are your views on dog showing and dog sports (agility, weight-pull, dock dog, etc.).

Thank you,

Bianca
