I love chickens they make great pets & I see their eggs as gifts for the care you give them . There is a processing plant down the street (they slaughter them there) that I could have worked at & pays pretty well ... But I just couldn't work somewhere where they ... Kill them

I was just 7 when I killed my first chicken. I then had to clean it in order for my great aunt to use it for chicken and dumplings.

Honestly, I think people who raise their own animals for food tend to place a higher value on them, therefore they treat them with respect.

There's something about raising an animal properly and then seeing it nourish your family in return that makes you honor and respect that animal even more.

Now feel free to disagree.....

I agree with you, Staci, but there's a big difference between killing an animal and eating it or feeding it to your family and friends (which I have never done but honestly think I'd be more comfortable doing that than buying meat from somewhere else), and working at a processing plant and watching animals living really poor quality of life being slaughtered on a mass scale.

Yes, I can relate to that, that is much different then killing them on a mass scale, sometimes I feel we as a society have gotten way too Industralized when it comes to our food.

Call a few vet clinics. I can name at least 1 person at every vet clinic I'm familiar with that raises chickens
Usually, I'm that one person

Our chickens are just for eggs (well, and pets lol), not for meat. Nobody in our family would be able to actually kill one of them.

That's so awesome. Milk is $3+ a gallon, avocados $1 a piece (or more!), and I've seen specialty lettuces for $5+.

Aldi sounds awesome. There aren't any in the DC area, I think. I can see where having your own farms would drastically lower the prices.
Aldi is amazing. It is the reason that I am able to eat so healthy, everything is at least a dollar cheaper than at the grocery store!

At Aldi I can get a pack of blackberries for 99 cents! I pay at LEAST $2 for the same at any other grocery here. 5 kiwi fruits for $1.99, yes please! And this isn't a rural Aldi, either.

Please tell me your Aldi looks like this:




Because if they do... why the heck are there German supermarkets in the US?

And yes, Aldi is awesome.

Yes indeed! Actually, the only reason we started going there was because my mom is German and she was thrilled that there was an Aldi down the street. We only had ONE Aldi in town when we first moved here, and now there are...a lot lol.

Most people around here hate Aldi for some reason. Mostly because of the shopping carts. They think it's SO AWFUL to have to pay a quarter for a shopping cart. HELLO PEOPLE! YOU GET THE ****ING QUARTER BACK WHEN YOU RETURN THE CART!

Yup, that's Aldi. They pay their workers AMAZING wages (their cashiers make more than I do and I'm an assistant manager), and let them sit down, etc etc. It is CLEARLY a european based grocery, nothing like the US ones. It's awesome. You also have to bring your own bags.
