TinyFist: Unrelated, but it has fascinated me that the US and the Dominican Republic are the only places I've ever been where chicken eggs are refrigerated.

I know in the UK, they vaccinate egg laying chickens against

Lots of autistic chickens I'd assume.

Just make sure he is locally sourced, cage free and organic. Otherwise he will taste like tofu

Well that's it I'm only buying inorganic chicken from now on!

Solid Muldoon: They say that human flesh tastes like chicken. Which means that chicken tastes like human flesh.

Food for thought. Or not. Seriously, don't think about it.

I've heard it tastes sweeter than chicken.

Deucednuisance: Duck sex: Gang rape. Seriously, five or six drakes will chase a duck to near exhaustion, grab her wings so she can't fly away, even going so far as to hold her head under water until she submits before the real fun starts. It's brutal.

Cup_O_Jo: So wait I should by non organic chicken because it is safer? LMFAO---Something tells me the writer is a VEGAN and wants me to be VEGAN. I am not buying it because it is "safer" I am buying it because cage free means happier chickens which means TASTIER chickens.

Cage-free means crowded in a big barn, with a food trough in the middle, and flap doors to go outside, which the chickens rarely do, because they're just as gluttonous as humans.  The difference in taste is the placebo effect.

Radioactive Ass: Gyrfalcon: This. I was never under the impression ANY chicken was "safe."

It isn't. It can go bad in a couple of hours or less if it wasn't handled properly by people you don't know in places that you have no control over. It can go bad in your trunk as you drive home from the store. If you can catch even the slightest smell that I can only describe as "Tinny" don't eat it. Ever. Toss it or take it back. If you bite into it and you get even a slight (Tinny again) taste spit it out. It can "Look" good and still be bad. The date and label on the package means squat as far as I'm concerned. I've gotten bad chicken from reputable chain stores with reputable labels on them. Shiat happens in the supply chain and a good store will make it right, especially with chicken.

I don't buy it because it's safer. I buy it because it says "organic" on the label, and I can lord it over all you inferior beings who buy "ordinary" chicken.

Regular and organic chicken are on equal branches of the same poul tree.

There's not much difference between an organically raise chicken and a traditionally raised chicken when it comes to farking.
