I only buy eggs from farms I have personally visited and approved of. It's easy for me to do this because I live in upstate NY.

That is a good idea.

We eat KFC occasionally, like maybe twice a year. I love their mashed potatoes and slaw, but am not really impressed with their chicken, and not only because of their cruel practices.

As for eggs, I buy Eggland's Best Organic eggs, which are cage free. Eggland's regular eggs, the ones in the white carton, are from caged hens, however. Unfortunately, where I normally shop, which is Food Lion, only has a small selection of egg options, so that's why I choose that particular brand.

Banquet chicken, the frozen stuff in a box, also practices cruel habits as far as their chickens go, too.

Have you ever gotten a chicken leg and the bone is broken? A high percentage of the time it's caused by abusive conditions during their raising or slaughtering. They feed meat chickens an extremely high fat diet, causing them to be so heavy that their legs can no longer hold them up.


The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes.

This is also because of all of the hormones that they inject into these poor chickens.

I didn't know the kfc treated animals inhumanely.

I don't eat their food, basically because they actually have fought governments that want to enforce a zero trans fat policy.

I don't eat trans fat, and I certainly do not eat the processed, chemical filled, greasy filth that they pass off as food.

The fact that they are cruel to the animals that give their life for our sustenance is just further proff that the company has no regard and respect for life, and anyone in it.

BTW....If you are serious about boycotting this company, be is known that they are owned by twinhut corp.

Which means, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC are all owned by the same company. If you truly feel strongly enough that you do not want to give profits to a company with such blantant disregard to health and life, than I would suggest not patronizing any of those 3 establishments.

[quote=Ima_StarrĀ®] They feed meat chickens an extremely high fat diet, causing them to be so heavy that their legs can no longer hold them up.[/quote] This is precisely the issue with geese and ducks (in many areas) --- they make them super-fat in order to make better pate de foie gras -- super-fatty liver spread. There was recently a big uproar in Chicago about this, because it's hideously cruel to the animals since they're basically not allowed to move and have fatty foods rammed down their throats. First, the Chicago City Council banned foie gras, then they rescinded the law, because, surprisingly, the lobby for haute cuisine is larger than the animal rights lobby. (As appalling as the treatment of geese and ducks is, I do feel that all that energy, time, and money would have been better spent on laws to help the homeless, abused children, health care, etc. Perhaps the lesson is that lobbyists for the latter should learn from the elite restauranteurs?)

It's probably better for you to not eat at those places anyhow. They aren't exactly healthy, no one is missing ANYTHING by not eating that 'food'

I believe that animals are food, but I also believe that they are giving their life for ours, and should be shown the respect and care that deserves.

The things I have learned from this thread disgust me.

I researched it some more on my own. I clicked a link, but it was just for a videogame?
