I didn't know if I should put this under humor or politics. This is from PETA. Not to be confused with People Eating Tasty Animals. I suggest that we all go out and buy a bucket of extra crispy. Why did they not protest Tyson Foods, you know Bill and Hillary's friends?

"Chickens are inquisitive and interesting animals and are thought to be at least as intelligent as dogs or cats. When in natural surroundings, not on factory farms, they form friendships and social hierarchies, recognize one another, love their young, and enjoy a full life, dust bathing, making nests, roosting in trees, and more.

Chickens raised for KFC aren’t able to do any of these things. They are crammed by the tens of thousands into sheds that stink of ammonia fumes from accumulated waste; they are given barely even room to move (each bird lives in the amount of space equivalent to a standard sheet of paper). They routinely suffer broken bones from being bred to be top heavy, from callous handling (workers roughly grab birds by their legs and stuff them into crates) and from being shackled upside down at slaughterhouses. Chickens are often still fully conscious as their throats are cut or when they are dumped into tanks of scalding hot water to remove their feathers. When they’re killed, chickens are still babies, not yet two months old, out of a natural life span of 10-15 years.

In May of 2001, KFC’s parent company, Yum Brands, Inc. assured PETA that it intended to “raise the bar” on animal welfare; yet, to date, KFC has done nothing to address some of the most egregious animal cruelty in the chicken industry. We need your help to convince KFC to take some key steps to reduce the worst suffering. Click here for a brief history of why PETA is targeting KFC.

I have twice. Shot them both and ate them. :eek:

One was a game rooster way back in the Talladega National Forest here in Bama. Most likely it had escaped when someone was fighting them back out in the woods to avoid being caught by the law since it is illegal to fight them and to bet on the figths both. Dunno how long it had been loose in the wild. The other was part of a group that had been wild for many generations. They had been released by the owners near where we were camping in an old house belonging to the parent's of the wife of my best friend. She said those chickens had been released and running wild for perhaps 20 years so many generations had been running loose.

Dang makes me hungry. Maybe I should get a bucket of KFC.

When I was a kid, chickens were the only animal that was so dumb that you had to put little lead specs on 'em to keep 'em from peckin' each other's eves out.
