    I need to let this go --- promise last mention of it. This is a dumb dumb dumb thing someone DID to some poor chickens. They were told if they pulled the tail feathers out they would grow faster. No*** they won't but they will run faster to get away from your stupid *** self the next time they see you. (***there are some words I would like to insert but I won't.....don't want to get banned from BYC)

    These are the same type of people that are the reason we have to have WARNING labels on tooth paste...Tooth Paste!! DANGER labels (with pictures even!...skull and cross bones) on Drain-o, so they don't make the mistake of using it as speghetti sauce. It is sad, that the world has come to this. But, if congress would approve the removal (or the banning) of all these labels...The problem would eventually cure itself. Until then, we can only focus on how fortunate the other side is.

    Okay, the fact that I'm horrified aside, what in the world was the logic behind pulling out the tail feathers? I can't fathom what they thought it would do that would cause the chickens to grow faster
