A few month's ago my Daughter came home with a very small chick, it was thrown off a truck near her school along with many dead and dying chicks arriving from Japan. My daughter fell in love with her so we kept her as a pet, in fact she thought she was a dog, running around the yard with the Rottweilers and greeting people at the gate and would come running wings flapping when called. Anyway a few days ago she started having trouble walking and had the runs that continued getting worse till she couldn't stand up, so I decided to put her out of her misery. My son's girlfriend lit up, grabbed a knife and starting a pot full of boiling water, within just a few minutes she was on the stove... Everyone except my daughter and I had a feast!!! I was told that when a chicken gets sick they are always eaten right away. So have we all eaten a sick chicken without knowing? Would you? I sure hope Bird flu never becomes epidemic here.
