    We bought chickens for eggs, and now I cannot eat chicken, since I love my chickies so much.[​IMG]
    anyone else have this "problem"?[​IMG]

    I continued to eat chicken for probably the first year. It has been YEARS since I ate chicken. And I also will not purchase or serve it. DS also does not eat chicken; however the rest of the family still do--just not here.

    I did when I was a kid and had my first RIR. I was in the 5th grade. I ate little to no chicken for years. Of course becoming a chef has changed all that, since it's very hard to be a "No-Chicken" chef, but I still eat far less chicken than most, and only properly raised free-range chicken. I will NEVER go near KFC. I do not approve of the way they raise, treat or process their birds. XXXX has videos that will certainly make you want to eat properly raised chicken should you choose to continue to eat chicken. There is no excuse for the way they treat their birds I understand that meat birds are different than our pets and our "Eggy Girls" but humane treatment should be mandatory REGARDLESS.

    I still eat chicken. In fact, I think I like it better now that I raise chickens. [​IMG]
