DailyDirt: Chickens Versus Eggs...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The American food chain can be fascinating, as well as disgusting. There are happy, free-range chickens. There are also apparently a lot of very unhappy, caged chickens. The treatment of farm animals seems to vary quite a bit, and the economics of the food industry doesn't always account for the well-being of animals. However, the situation may be slowly changing as more humane techniques are developed, but until science figures out how to grow tasty meat in a petri dish, we'll still have to kill animals if we're going to continue to eat them. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

    Are chicks hatched from a plastic cup still healthy? I wanted to see the chicken emerge from its own goop.

      Take a look at the video. It doesn't show the chick emerging, but does show a chick running around on the floor next to a person walking.
