    Better or worse than current factory farming? I'm not sure, but I do like cheap chicken.

    Oh My that is enough to make me want to puke! Are you even seriously considering this? This is an abonomation!

    NO NO NO NO NO

    This is certainly not better then current factory farming. Who knows it could even be WORSE!

    Uh .,... sorry dude I'm NOT on board and never will be. We need to get back to nature to get optimal nutrition and sustainable farming. This is neither.... Chickens produce the best quality eggs/meat when they roam free eating BUGS/GRUBS... and natural vegetation. This kind of farming would produce nothing of the sort. NOt to mention the continue degregation of the environment from the pollution this would cause. You turn useful manure into pollution...wonderful solution all this factory farming bs.

    Cheaper != better, and its not even cheaper in the long run when you take into consideration all the health problems caused with pumping them full of antibiotics, and the quality of eggs/meat you get out of it that is making us SICKER. Not to mention the cleanup of the pollution that this causes...

    and last but not least... its certainly far from ethical!

    Why not just take a pill instead of eat then??

    Seriously..

    So they outlaw the use of human fetuses in food production and then try to create an army of brainless chickens? This is abuse of a species! Birds were designed to live free, breed, and occasionally be eaten. The kind of evils happening now and proposed here will only translate to sicker and sicker people. Great for shortening the lifespans of our species and for human population control, but bad if you love people or animals. Those birds would be force fed antibiotics and corn, soy and other toxic foods. Then you'd buy this chicken in a freezer bag marked "natural chicken" and eat it, taking in all that inflammatory garbage. And dying at 50 of easily preventable chronic ailments. Poultry isn't even good to eat on a regular basis anyway! Too much omega 6.

    In regards to animal cruelty, it's very simple.

    Free range > Brainless > Cramped and miserable in dirty unethical cages

    Just skip the middle rung, and keep chickens where they are meant to be kept, in a natural environment.
    There aren't many problems in life that can't be solved by sleeping it off, or adding more butter.

    i read this earlier, scary stuff!
    also, if they ever manage to engineer meat in a lab as they are attempting you couldn't pay me to eat it!

    They are already engineering boneless synthetic 'fish meat' somewhere. (South America, I think) Can't find the article, but, unlike the theoretical brainless chicken scenario, this one's already happening.

    Wow that's a pretty horrific thought experiment with a couple of rubber chicken models for context. Keeping an open mind though - it's presented as an alternative to factory farms, which last I checked, are not going away anytime soon.
    BTW, truly free range chickens can not really be produced in large quantities - they require too much pasture. Melissa McEwan had a nice piece on it a while back. If all we had were truly free roaming birds, chicken would be an occasional treat at best.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
