Not in the "mmm, mmm, good" love them sense, but truly enjoy watching, interacting and taking care of them? I had it in my mind that we would raise our chickens for eggs and meat, and maybe keep one or two as pets for the kids. But now that we've had them for near 6 weeks, I am honestly falling in love with them. They are so funny and personable. I've bought them worms, grubs and crickets, and even put real bird toys out in the coop to give them things to play with. And yet, when the time comes, I still do not have any hesitation dispatching them and serving them up for dinner. I figure that while my chickens are alive, I'm going to give them the best possible life. And in a way, that makes it easier in the end for me to want to eat them. I accidentally stumbled onto a website the other day that had very graphic and nasty pictures of how egg production companies keep their laying chickens. I had no idea. I can't imagine the meat birds getting treated much better. How many of you love your chickens, and eat them too?
