My DH and I had to go to Jackson, MS the other day. On the way back, we passed a semi truck from Tyson Farms. (Why do they call their operation a FARM I wonder???) Anyway, the trailer it was pulling was full of chickens. We looked at them and could not speak. There were so many crammed in there, and we saw many many pairs of feet stuck up in the air, obviously from the poor chickens that didn't make it. Almost everyone looked like they had been pecked of most of their feathers. We were quiet and sad for so long, and when we got home, we went out and pet our own chickens. I tell you, some things done these days in the name of progress just break your heart. BUT, to end on a positive note, it sure makes me feel good to see how many people really do take care and have empathy for their animals, even if they are being raised for food. Bless you all.
