We have seen disturbing news about chickens being culled over the birdflu. Though we hate to see good food go to waste we do agree that the best way to battle birdflu is to kill as many chickens and other birds as possible.
Therefor it's your duty to eat chicken with every meal and snack, and if you can get away with it run over a Canadian goose on your daily commute as well. You're saving the planet.
Just ponder this, which fowl creature is better prepared to battle new strange diseases:
The seed and occasional worm-fed scared little chicken wandering around outside unprotected from the elements where at any time stray flu germs can attack his already battered immune system.
Or, the strong indoors protected super chicken with his defenses bolstered with antibiotics, steroids, and don't forget all the nutrients he gets in protein form from eating those yummy meat by-products and fish meal.
And, with any luck the antibiotics our relaxed indoor chickens eat end up in our systems to boost our daily pill regimen and further protect us against the evil flu.
