Because every chicken deserves to be happy



"Funky Chicken says what?!"

I bought cage-free eggs for the first time this week. I was influenced by the mega-marketing macheen which is Mother Oprah. She showed clips from a documentary Food Inc. which I had been interested in but hadn't Red Boxed it yet.




I felt sorry for the wee little chickens, in the dark, crowded together just to make me the most delicious breakfast known to womankind, that is the Sausage McMuffin with Egg. I don't' know if Mickey D's is on board with the whole cage-free thing, that won't stop me from ordering the S.M.E. but at least I can do my part at home.




I believe that everything on this Earth has a purpose and somethings purpose is just to get eaten. But, I don't want to make its sojourn here on Earth any longer or more painful just so I can buy eggs cheaper. If someone knows of a way to make my time on Earth a little better, I'd appreciate it if they would pay it forward, too. Nuf said.

"I believe that everything on this Earth has a purpose and somethings purpose it just to get eaten." Sounds like a great facebook status update. And it reminds me of a bumpersticker: Some people are alive simply because it's against the law to kill them.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

I dream of having my own band of happy chickens in the back yard and sending my kids out to collect the eggs for a nice fresh breakfast.

I wonder if Food Inc is the reason eggs have costed so much in TN. I can't afford cage free chickens. I don't want to watch the show. Please tell everyone not to quit buying unless they are sure how this will effect everyone down the line...eggs are some of the cheap fresh food I can afford.

You have a lot of interesting comments today, Payney.
There's a reason people are vegetarians. Wait til you see what they do to cows and pigs. Chickens are living on Pleasure Island, comparatively. Not to bum you out, or anything.
You have to be careful with eggs labeled cage free.

I wonder if the animals care if we participate in human trafficking, abortion, murder, gluttony, greed, averace ... etc. Or that we let other people live in squalor and destitution?

Yo can have my chickens too. For me, chicken has to be a SUB flavor and not a prime flavor.

And what's up with anon?

I do agree that some thing's purposes, is just to be eaten.

Food Inc. was a very interesting movie that's for sure. If you think Big Oil companies are in bed with the politians it's nothing compared to the Food Corporations. Especially the meat industry.
