Mmmmm... chicken abortions and slaughtered piglets...

why would we rename them "chicken abortions," subby? the eggs we eat (with a few disgusting exceptions) are unfertilized. they are cruel because of the abhorrent living conditions of most egg-producing chickens. maybe instead, we should name them "chicken torture nuggets."

Hey, going by the current level of understanding of female biology that around half the people in this country have, unfertilized eggs are people, and each one is sacred. Therefore, eggs are chicken abortions.

That would only work if they're Arizona chickens.

It's only a chicken abortion if you find a visible embryo inside.

I only eat chicken abortions if they're a product of chicken-rape or chicken-incest or if the life of the chicken is in danger.

I am not sure they get consent before they start farking that chicken. So there should be plenty for you.

I don't have the exact quote in front of me, but the Dalai Lama said something along the lines of, from a karmic perspective, if you're going to eat meat, eat beef. One cow dies, and it feeds many people. A shrimp cocktail, on the other hand, is like a culinary holocaust.

My lunch today, with a shrimp salad side.

Its not a chicken abortion, its a chicken period. Chickens ovulate just about every day or every other day whether there is a rooster around or not.

I call them chicken ovums.

Heh. The funny thing is, hens are the ones with the XY (or analogous) chromosomes, while the roosters are XX. In mammals, XY is male and XX is female.

So hens lay eggs like male mammals produce sperm. It's more like chicken spunk.

/really, avian sexual characteristics are so weird they call the chromosomes W and Z instead of X and Y
//hens are WZ, roosters are WW

They are chicken fetuses, Get it right people.

Nor what we do with the Angus we raise, after they're ... raised.

Exactly. They're chicken menstruations, not chicken abortions.

Do we have to explain it to you again? A chicken cannot lay eggs if she is raped. Her body has natural doo-thingys that start prevents her from getting pregnant unless she is actively enjoying the sex. Therefore, if she lays an egg, it must be consensual sex!

Not True!

If you buy local eggs they frequently are fertilized. As long as eggs are collected every day a fertilized egg will be nearly indistinguishable from an unfertilized egg. Refrigeration stops all development. I see the little blastodisks all the time when I cook with locally purchased eggs. See image below:

force feeding to make pate seems cruel to me. then again the harsh conditions animals live under is nothing i want to endure.

-- i prefer the thread where closet case assfreaks brag about what hot chiles and spices they eat. hurts going in, hurts coming out, we all know it. to brag about it strikes me as way odd. this is not the SM hotline.

cloaca remnants ?

drjekel_mrhyde: The author sounds like he works for PETA


yeah... the article lost any credibility when he attacked eggs, pigs, and cows.

/ although, personally, I have no problem with veal, fois gras, or lobster.
// never had balut (but there doesn't appear to be an ethical problem)
/// sharkfins are unfortunately harvested. should be regulated so that only well populated shark species are used, and that they find something to do with the rest of the shark. pretty sad to toss away a beautiful fish for a fraction of its harvestable body.
 
2012-10-08 10:58:04 AM  
Balut sounds gross but I have no objection to other people eating it. Besides if it hasn't hatched yet then it doesn't count as a duck, right?
 
2012-10-08 10:58:06 AM  
Won't someone please think of the poor green beans?
 
2012-10-08 10:58:32 AM  
I've forcefed geese. It's really not that cruel - the geese don't seem to mind.

Eating a vegan walnut pate instead of foie gras, however, as the article suggests, seems extremely cruel. To me.
 
2012-10-08 10:58:32 AM  
But is it a 'legitimate' chicken abortion?

plus the fact that they suggest substituting veal for a portabella mushroom.... really

When they're fertilized. And yes, I know you can buy chicken abortions at health food stores.

KrispyKritter: force feeding to make pate seems cruel to me. then again the harsh conditions animals live under is nothing i want to endure.


I have not done any personal research on the matter, but I have heard chefs and the people who raise geese defend the practice somewhat. their argument is that the forcefeeding is done at a time when the geese are in the process of storing a massive amount of food/calories in their bodies before migrating. although forcefeeding sounds terrible to other people, it's not entirely unnatural for the goose at that time of the year.

/ then, instead of letting them go on vacation to the tropics, they kill them and eat their livers.
