So, I am introducing my six year old to the chicks, and explaining that some will be for laying eggs and some will be for meat. "So, are you going to be OK with eating these chickens when they grow up?" (just testing the waters here) "Ummmm... I don't think so..." "OK. Why not?" "Well, I don't think they want to be eaten." (he looks at me like I am stupid) Blink blink.... OK, this is going to take some time, I can tell *Added Later* I said this a little further down, when the idea hit me, but does anyone else have a cute story about their kids interacting with their chickens or with the food chain? I think it would make a fun thread.
