I 100% agree with you. My mom
raises chickens - mostly for eggs - but has slaughtered a few of the roosters and a chicken she thought wasn't producing. It wasn't necessarily easy emotionally (or physically), but at the same time it's only fair that we see exactly where our food and meat come from - a real live animal. We're far too separated from our food.

In terms of bunnies, they're cute, but they can be mean. And they were a food source far before they were a pet...

I'm with you 100%.

I do agree with you, not only is it sustainable, you are deciding the diet of your meat, and that is very important. Although, I couldn't do it myself, I agree with your decision. Just the other day I tried kangaroo meat, and everyone back home just seemed to be disgusted by it because they build these cognitive notions that it's a 'cute animal', but what is the real difference between kangaroo and chicken? Although I must admit, I didn't like the taste of it. You're not being cruel, you're taking control and will end up with healthy results, something these industries are not achieving.

Love your blog,
