Ugggh. A woman at my youngest son's preschool asked me why I keep chickens and I explained that we keep some for eggs and others for meat. "why would you kill them?" "why don't you just go to payless?" "YOu mean the cute little fuzzy chicks?" yes lady, I mean chicks that you see in the feed store and think are cute and then convienently forget that last night's KFC was in fact a live chicken at one point. If you want to ask me an intelligent question about why I choose to raise my own chickens for meat, that's great. If you want to be convienently self righteous about killing (unless it's prepackaged) go away.
