What makes chickens happy?
In recent years, the animal welfare world has moved beyond looking at how to minimize suffering to exploring whether animals can also enjoy their lives, Torrey said.

John Glisson of the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association says broiler chickens are “couch potatoes” and that some people may mistake the birds’ laziness for a medical issue. He said trying to assess welfare is tricky beyond established industry measures, like whether a chicken dies from disease before it’s slaughtered.

Still, animal welfare is becoming a bigger public relations concern, and companies say they’re always looking for ways to take better care of their chickens. ...

UPS, I mentioned some time ago that my dad was an alcoholic. One of his drinking buddies was a fellow from Cumming, Georgia named Junior Samples. (Yes, THAT Junior Samples.) I met Junior a couple of times, too, but didn’t know him nearly as well as my dad did. My parents were divorced, and my dad’s second wife was one of Junior’s first cousins. Sadly, my dad and Junior both died relatively young, Junior at age 57 and Dad at 60.

Instead of wasting thousands, if not millions, of Canadian taxpayers’ dollars on this inane project, why didn’t the researchers just interview Foghorn Leghorn?

Isn't the hippie utopia of animal lifestyle the whole point of this article?

Yes, Jim, and for very good commercial reasons. My stepdad owned a relatively small chicken farm, raising “only” 70,000 birds at a time. Cannibalism among the species gallus gallus domesticus can run as high as fifteen percent. You’re talking about 10,500 dead chickens in one cycle. No marginally profitable operation can sustain that kind of losses. When I raised chickens for eggs to use at home, I was able to separate them and avoid this problem. However, I was raising mere dozens, and not myriads, of birds. You can’t very well give 70,000 birds individual lodging, Jim. Welcome to real life, and not the hippie utopia the liberals imagine is possible.

There is a very good reason for trimming beaks, Jim. Chickens, much like Christians, tend to peck each other to death.
Sa commercial reasons, Tim not a good reason. If you're raising your own chickens you can stop that from happening anyway. It effectively cripples the chicken. Make sure you go to a hatchery that doesn't do that stunt.👎

I kinda like divertimento cheese sandwiches, as long as they don’t have too much mayonnaise.

For a second, I wondered why this news item would be appearing at SermonAudio. Does it have anything to do with sodomites? Christmas? Catholic priests treatment of young boys?
Then I realized it is a 'divertimento' as they say in music, something to take our attention away from the Hot Topic of the Day.

Your chickens are pushovers, TMC. My goats insist on pizza three times a week, flat-screen TV, Sleep Number beds and a hot tub. If I don’t provide all of this, I’m afraid they’ll call the Department of Caprine Services and have me picked up for neglect. The cell phone bills alone have me on the brink of bankruptcy.
Are your goats in prison?

TMC, is there a sinister undertone to your hens-only chicken organization? Do I perceive the onset of a hennist movement? Will we soon be seeing #clucktoo all over the Internet?

I would like to purchase your book, JAG. Do you accept Visa, or should I wire you some possums?

Buckeyes (TMC) says...
@JAG I guess that explains it- we have only Hens and no Roosters!"

That definitely explains it. Get some roosters and you will see the paranoid side of the hens. The grain will be last on their list...

So Doc, you think that was smart?

Listen to these quotes from my self published "Quotes by JAG" (available at

From page 0.5 "If your hunting for oppossums, be on the alert for stray hill people"

From page 2x+5 "never steal shopping carts (sorry Chris000)"

Page 3y-z "Christ wasn't born on Christmas"😉
