The chickens above are my egg layers. We give them feed every day, but we let them forage as much as possible. It's good for them to find food on their own and they enjoy it. But it also helps keep my feed costs down, which makes my egg sales more profitable. I mean, I'm not getting rich off of them or anything and I have a small flock which has a completely different regimen and economic drivers. But beyond my egg layers, my meat birds also have their fair share of protein.

So back to this commercial.....They claim their vegetarian diet produces tender and juicy chicken. I'm certainly no scientist, but I can tell you our chicken is quite tender and juicy!

The commercial also said that none of their chickens receive hormone treatments. Guess what? Hormone use in poultry was banned in the United States in the 1950s!
So I guess I'm saying if eating vegetarian chicken makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, awesome. That's the best part of our food system....you have all these choices. I'm just offering a different viewpoint of vegetarian chickens.
