@browncoat - I've heard recently that someone was talking about setting up the ultimate poultry plant, which would be "humane" as well.
They would remove part of the brains of the chickens so that they couldn't feel pain and wouldn't want to move around, and then remove their feet and things as well, so that they could stack them, and basically treat them like equipment.
Sounds horrific, doesn't it?
But, in theory, the chickens wouldn't be in pain or misery. And they would be very cheap to produce. It's definitely an interesting option to think about.
