Mental (Mc)Nugget

Food tastes better when shared with good people, and it's always nice to have good conversation between mouthfuls. So here's a pickle for the dinner table or lunchroom. I cut and pasted it from an article published by Richard Bawden and friends. Richard is a visionary from down under who has been quietly transforming what it means to work towards sustainable food systems since the '70s.

Congenital blindness is a condition that occurs in some strains of poultry. In the wild, such afflicted chickens die soon after hatching. If hand-reared, however, they can thrive and can be kept in intensive conditions with much less stress than sighted birds and are therefore much more productive. Would you buy eggs from blind chickens?
