"...unrelated, here is the funniest thing i’ve seen today:
This Facebook ad is particularly heinous:i love so many things about this. chicken with a capital C. his attachment to his Chicken Friends (where does this come from?). he believes that his Chicken Friends love him. he proposes that Chicken life is as important as human life (!).
“IT’s” cannot sell “ITSELVES”, Chickens, and other animals, are most certainly not an “IT”, but *THEY*, *HE*, *SHE*.
And to sell their flesh, chopped up, possibly from multiple Chickens, for THREE DOLLARS FIFTY? Their lives are *priceless*
Heres something that Chickens are good at “selling”, that *THEY* are lovely, gentle animals, who love life, love each other, love *THEIR* human friends, that *THEY* love *THEIR* lives.
The least we can do for our Chicken Friends, and all other animals, is to respect *THEIR* individual lives, that *THEY* are not “things”, but other sentient beings, with just as much right to life as you or I.
They are why I promote Veganism.
i wonder if he has blocked out ‘nature’, where foxes, raccoons, and dogs (which (“who”?) are all omnivores and therefore not “required” to eat Animal Friends) are all natural predators of chickens…or even better, that your Chicken Friends themselves are also omnivores with diets that can include mice."
Glad you "love" my last post :-) RE using an initial capital for animal names, I figure, if religious types get away with granting themselves fancy titles and "...papal infallibility", wearing big hats, and spelling their fictitious superman's name with an initial cap, why not let it spread to the other animals around us? They've certainly showed more compassion than aforementioned superman-whose-granted-initial-capital-status! More deserving of our respect, sure, laugh at me for having "Chicken Friends", better lovely little Birds (caught again!) who run to meet me each day than imaginary friends, no? ;-)
Your Own Posts Seem To Lack Upper Case Letters, Are You Perhaps Jealous Of My Overuse, When Your Own Keyboard Lacks Shift Keys? Key Loss seems common these days, I blame Global Warming, or George Bush's presidency.
I do believe Chickens appreciate their lives as much as I do mine, hell, look at how nuts they go over eating Falafel! Do you get such enjoyment each day?
Foxes and Raccoons do not live here in Invercargill New Zealand, although, we do have Giant and Colossal Squid around my island, so THERE! Neither show particular interest in hurting Chickens though.
About killing and eating mice, surely not a nice way to treat our little Mice Friends, right? We have wild Mice who share the Chicken Coop, I've always been more worried that they would harm the Chickens, than the other way around.
That said, it seems I myself am in more danger than the Mice!
