"100% Natural"

My DH and I went to Arby's for lunch the other day. The sign that greeted us as we walked in the door said something to the effect of: "Now offering 100% All Natural chicken".

Cool, I thought - - the mainstream is finally getting it. Then I read a little more from the propaganda at each table: "no water, salt, or phospates injected." Oh . . . so that's it.

Granted, I'll give Arby's credit for going this far. But, I want happy chickens, too. Not chickens that have spent their entire lives in cramped, dirty, dark confinement. I want chickens who have free run of the yard, who aren't de-beaked, who aren't chock full of antibiotics and growth hormones.

I had the french dip you think those sandwiches are made from happy cows?

I love how organic, cage free, farm fresh brown eggs are twice the price at the grocery. We sell ours for much less. A happy hen= A tasty egg.
