To Kill a Chicken

Excellent article on Slate about the urban farming movement and how some city dwellers are now killing their own meat. There are even classes explaining how to kill the chickens you raise.

I think this is a great idea. I believe everyone should partake in the killing of their own food at least once. It not only gives you a better appreciation of how your food is raised, but it also helps you to understand the cycle of life and death that is part of nature. Too many people, especially vegans, have separated themselves from that understanding with an overly romantic view of wildlife.
