The Disconnect

Pretty powerful image – a sharp knife and fork with the little chick right there on the plate beside them.  My natural instinct is to get that soft little thing away from the sharp cutlery.

What is really sad is that a little chick’s fate on an industrial farm is far worse than if you killed it right there on the plate.

Millions upon millions of newborn male chicks who can’t lay eggs and can’t be used for meat, are deemed as useless and quickly put into plastic garbage bags and left to suffocate or ground up alive every day in the world.

Imagine that for a moment.

We need to stop this dis-connect and start to connect with the reality of how food gets to our plates and make wiser choices that protect animals and that better fit our own personal values as well.
