Chickens and ethics

In this video I discuss chickens and the symbiosis that we’ve formed between our species and theirs. I briefly discuss Joel Salatin, Michael Pollan and here mention Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. I recommend checking into the work of all three and I’ll have later posts discussing each.

Chickens form a larger portion of the worlds meat consumption. I don’t demand you stop eating fast food chicken but begin to consider where your food comes from. Just acknowledging is the first step. If you like chicken, explore. Free range, organic, pastured, well fed birds are wonderful.

Special thanks to Kevin Roberts for showing me what real chicken is about. Fresh grilled liver and hearts will always remind me of days on the farm.
