Three-legged chicken gets reprieve


Have you heard about the three-legged chicken? I’ve got to say, I agree with VP on this one: why is it that the deformed animals are always spared death at the slaughterhouse? Wouldn’t it be nice to read once, “And because they were so touched by the three-legged chick, the family decided to not only let their entire flock of chickens live out their lives on the farm, but to stop eating meat all-together.” Instead we get: “In about 14 weeks, the 99 other chickens will have their their heads lopped off and their feathers plucked.”
