Chickens in the News! #1

Welcome to a new mid-week Chicken Diction series, called “Chickens in the News!” This will be a weekly post of a picture, story, news item, or other interesting happening, all involving chickens in some way or another. As our chickens get older, and therefore wiser it has become apparent that they are that much more world-savvy and I believe it is important to more fully represent their worldliness by including news about chickens around the world, in your backyard and mine.

For the inaugural installment of “Chickens in the News!” we we go to Shainghai, China where chickens are not only very skinny it would seem, but naked, dead, and hanging from a wire. Not all chickens enjoy the luxury of a Tucson backyard paradise, remember that young whippersnapper Chicken Diction aficionados. One of this blog’s goals is to expose the harsh realities of the varied and complex lives that chickens have throughout this sometimes cruel world.

Okay not really – they don’t know I have it, I didn’t pay for it or ask permission, but I bet they didn’t ask permission of that little girl either.)
