This fall, I chopped the head off of a live chicken. Then I plucked, cleaned, and cooked it. All in the name of animal ethics.
After almost a full semester in Animals and Ethics class, I said enough to antibiotic-filled poultry. I decided to take my food choices into my own hands…literally. So I attended a “Meet your Meat” workshop at the Duke Campus Farm in Hillsborough, NC. At the farm, I learned how to “kill, de-feather, and process a live chicken in a humane and efficient manner.”
