No time for a recipe this week, but for those of you interested in farm animal welfare issues  (and those of you who eat chicken),  I wanted to draw your attention to a thought-provoking blog.

The Chicken Out 39 day blog, The short, unnatural life of a broiler chicken follows the short life of a factory farmed chicken straight from the chick’s beak, one day at a time.  Our chick’s diary blog is on day 10 already and with the short journey from newly hatched chick to oven-ready bird happening in just 39 days, this is one blog that won’t take up space in your feed reader for long.

I have a feeling this blog is going to be difficult to read but thank you for letting me know about it.

It’s a terrible story, and too much out of sight and out of mind.

The ironic bit is that battery farmed chickens taste like the litter they are raised on. We have to break this cycle of supermarkets driving the production of cheap, unhealthy, abusive food and pretending it’s all driven by the consumer. One look at the obesity rates tells you that the less well off can eat less, be healthier and save money by eating properly instead of eating the crap shoved out by the food giants. And we can put a stop to animal abuse at the same time. It’s not difficult.
