    With you. Even a food animal deserves our compassion and humane treatment.

    Im not exactly sure if they have emotions or not, but they do deserve a WAY better life. It should be illegal to have them confined in small cages with hardly enough room to walk for their whole life, it's just cruel

    Emotions I have noted in my hens (because of the sounds they make and body language):

    extreme joy
    fear
    disappointment
    being sneaky
    bowing to me or another hen
    snuggly mood
    greed
    pain
    ho-hum just another day
    sleepy
    hungry
    proud

    These are the ones we feel too!

    I'm almost positive they all have emotions... Ummmm OH! okay so I walk in to my coop the gals come to meet me but there all scared and all this hiding behind me and "crying" Go to collect eggs with a hen in my arms she freaks out and burys her head im the crook of my arm making soft "bawk bawk bawk" noises and BOOM in the boxs right in front of my face there is a HUGE black snake... I swear they where scared of it and thats why the were acting off that day...

    I doubt they have emotions but everything should have a more natural life and be treated better.

    Attitude noted. Also...I wonder...if Beef pot-pie is acceptable...OR a venison roast?

    Gotta eat something.
