I mean they love to fight. It's their instinct. People like to watch it.

If we were to tax it, we could make a ton of money to renovate the Pavillion.

It's legal in New Mexico and Louisiana. Why not Texas?

You're kidding, right? Why don't we stick raptor claws on people and let them fight. They love it too, it would be fun.

I had two little roosters once-they were so cute-just loved me to death but didn't like my son or husband. Those little spurs could do some damage. I couldn't imagine them fighting for sport or money.

For Christ's sake, we EAT chickens! Have you seen what they do to process chicken?

I have seen the process, as I was a maintenance warehouse super at a Pilgrim's rendering plant for several years. Food is food, killing food is commonplace. The chicken industry has only refined the process for streamline purposes. If you'd like, I can explain the process from start to finish.

I am aware of everything that goes on. That's why I am vegetarian.

I watched a movie the other day, I think it was "Fast Food", a sleeper movie about a meat packing plant. Did not want any beef for a week after watching it. Pretty gross, but a good movie.

Just because that is the reality of how the food industry operates does not make it right. That is the reason I am a vegan.

Vegan is even better than vegetarian. I try to be but sometimes wear leather shoes and eat some honey.

Actually, I could turn the chicken industry on its head with what I know.
The process goes far beyond what you have read or seen. I have participated in a lot of the R&D (simply by invitation due to me being on a continuous improvement committee within the company). You would be shocked at some of the things that go on beyond the housing and rendering stages; those are the things that are inhumane because they affect consumers directly, even though the consumer is unaware.
Here’s one clue: Do you remember the old Pilgrim TV commercial wherein Bo says,“There’s nothin’ in our chicken but chicken!” Well, he wasn’t joking.
Clue #2: Pilgrim’s Pride wastes nothing, and I mean nothing.

Sorry, I never buy frozen meat or seafood, only fresh or aged.
I can tell you this; the average store-bought frozen chicken spent 2-1/2 to 5 years in -11 degree storage. The average turkey is 1 - 3 years stored. The average frozen entrée, depending on the ingredients, can range anywhere between 2 – 7 years… Then there are the canned goods; with the preservatives in use today, some are almost eternal.

When you are eating from any of the fast food chains, are you aware of the true origin and preparation of what you are consuming?

KFC chicken tenders, pot pies, prepared wings = PP/PP
Dominoes & Pizza Hut wings = PP/PP
Burger King & Jack in the Box chicken patties and filets = PP/PP
Buffalo Wild Wings = PP/PP
Kroger brand prepared foods, i.e. most frozen entrees, meat patties, chicken patties, nuggets and filets = PP/PP
The chicken industry’s largest export product is “Paws” to China (I guess you know what a paw is)

In order to sell chicken in Mexico and other countries,(even though they own many rendering plants there) chicken processors have to add yellow dye to the cool down wash. This is to imitate the appearance of a fat chicken, as many in their respective populace view a white chicken as premature. Somewhat similar to yellow butter vs. white butter.

Tidbit: the chicken you are eating (3 lb fryer) was only 6 – 7 weeks old when it was slaughtered.
