I was just reading a variety of articles on the commercial chicken industry on the internet. I am not going to share any of them because I don’t want a bunch of arguments or debates going on here. But, I will say, commercial chicken is DISGUSTING! Not only disgusting but UNHEALTHY for you too! I will tell you that I realize that raising your own chickens for meat is not for everyone however, if you’re going to buy commercial chicken think twice! I can’t remember which one it is, but either Purdue or Tyson has a commercial where they claim their chickens are fed a “vegetarian” diet. Let me make this clear, CHICKENS ARE NOT VEGETARIANS THEY ARE OMNIVORES! A vegetarian diet is not a healthy diet for a chicken!! Instead buy your chicken from a reputable local farmer, one that does not feed their chickens primarily corn. One that does not inject with vaccinations or antibiotics, or where the “farm” has so many chickens they can’t turn around and they stand and lay down in their filth!
Ever wonder why we as Americans seem to have so many medical issues these days? Why the cancer rates are sky high? Why more and more people have gluten issues? Why our children seem to be being diagnosed more and more with learning disabilities, food allergies, and behavioral issues? The list goes on……IT’S THE FOOD WE EAT AND THE TOXIC ENVIRONMENT WE LIVE IN!
We are blessed to be able to raise our own chickens for meat. They live a happy and healthy life prior to making it to our dinner table. They free range on bugs, grass, weeds, seeds, and whatever else they like to eat in our chemical free yard. They live the life they would if they were wild, as it should be. We will NEVER buy disgusting and unhealthy commercial chicken from a grocery store ever again!
