I Heart Chickens

We look after these beautiful ladies from time to time , for our neighbors.

They are fascinating, entertaining and inquiring. I gave up eating animals when I was twelve and certainly would have done so sooner had i met a chicken and made the connection. My grandmother had passed her PETA magazines on to me, she never opened them knowing what was inside and when I opened them and learned about what was being done to feed humanity, the murder and torture that went into making this so called "meat" .

I quit the stuff, much to the dismay of said grandmother who did eat meat, mostly.

There is so much disassociation between the meat people eat being animals - we name it things like hot dog, pork chop, steak etc and have no idea whom it has come from.

I am happy I don't eat animals, they are my friends.
