KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts.

First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name? Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the "FRIED" food issue. It's not. The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called "chickens" are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing. I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

go straight to Soylent Green.

Put the chickens in a zombie Matrix, so that people can remain in their Matrix of advertising and aversion to unpleasant thoughts, which prevents them from thinking about how inhumanely livestock is treated.

I suppose it does have a certain symmetry to it.

I want to say that I'm in favor of growing chickens without brains. No brain, no suffering. But of course the chickens would be born with brains. Part of the brain would then be removed (that means torn out). Plus the feet. (And they don't specify whether the feet would be removed before or after part of the brain is yanked out.) Then packed into huge "hives" of brainless, feetless chicken. But don't worry, the poultry industry will make sure there's no suffering.

If that isn't revolting then I don't know what is. If that isn't a peek into a hideous future then I don't know what is.

I buy cage-free eggs and chicken, I pay more, and yeah, I know you think I'm stupid.

Ok, so between these two choices:

- Fully conscious chickens spending their entire lives in a living hell, newborn babies finding themselves being shuttled down an assembly line instead of being mothered...

- Unconscious chickens in the same conditions, except without actually feeling any pain or anguish


The second choice is the creepy one?

Frightening? Try reading about living conditions in factory farms. Or what goes on in slaughterhouses. I'd much rather eat something that has no capacity to suffer than an animal that lived a miserable existence before being carved up alive.

Yes, because chickens are vermin. I have raised them and unless they are laying eggs their only purpose in life is to be heated to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

As to the vegetarians in the thread that can't stand hurting animals, you do know that your life is a mere side-effect of living in an obscenely wealthy and encapsulated society. The only reason you can opine over the pathetic and short lives of other living things is because you have no connection to the brutish planet we live on. All the hard work in life is done for you. In order for animals to live, something has to die. Being unable to handle that idea is the ultimate in immaturity.

Am I the only one who thinks this guy might be hardcore trolling? Pointing out that the only way to "humanely" raise chickens would be an unworkably complicated Chicken Matrix?

Hell, raise a couple of chickens in your backyard. I realize not everyone can (renters, condo owners, etc), but if you don't want factory farmed chicken or eggs, raising a few isn't rocket science. The chickens are happy (right up til you humanely dispatch them). Plus you get tons of eggs to eat and sell before Camilla ends up in the soup pot.

If I'm not mistaken, they would be exploiting a genetic defect which causes the chickens to be born without higher brain function. I believe the term for this is Anencephaly. They'll be bred to have this genetic defect so they only develop a brain stem to keep their heart, lungs and digestion process working.

No, got that same feeling from reading the article. Guy not far from me, raises a few chickens and other birds. Chickens are black long legged with medium sized breasts. Damn good chicken not to fat, they live half inside and half outside. Gets plenty of eggs, usually only has about 30 or so. Get to help him butcher out in exchange for free chicken and eggs. Split a field raised hog with him about twice a year, he has friend that cures hams(de-boned) that are awesome.

Bell and Evans is probably the first guiltless meat out there. They've got compliments from PETA and the Humane Society of the US on their site. They use carbon dioxide to slaughter their chickens and raise them in humane conditions. And the chicken is quite good.

Wait, slow suffocation is more humane than chopping their head off?

It's actually not slow suffocation. They simply pass out and die without any discomfort. It's the recommended way to kill lab rodents. The first time I saw it was on a nature show. A volcano in Africa occasionally belches carbon dioxide. It's heavier than air so it sinks into ditches and gullies. Kills plenty of children and animals in Africa. The show showed animals walking into the ditch full of carbon dioxide, then just keeling over. Then vultures tried to land and eat the carcasses and they promptly pass out and die. Totally bizarre. Here's a description of one of the larger CO2 events (Lake Nyos, Cameroon)
