Gee, after all those great alternate uses, why not just hang them on clips and use them for shooting practice?

They would be good for people who feed their pets raw food diets.

I like the idea of feeding them to reptiles.

The phrase "spent hen" makes me very sad.

This is a sign of the current apocolypse, I assure you. Sick, wrong, morally reprehensible. Once you realize that this, in the end, is what unbridled capitalism will do.. then worry about you.

I don't get it. In my far, far agricultural past, when I was involved in the care of chickens (whom I still hate to this day, and will gladly eat), Old hens ended up as stewed chicken (with dumplings!) at Sunday dinner. That's what "stewers" are at the butcher store.

I must say that our way of butchering was much more human than this zombie chicken scenario. My aunt was especially good: She'd pick up the chicken, cuddle it to her immense bossom (she bore more than a passing resemblence to a "Far Side" lady), and, while cooing to it, break its neck. Clean break everytime. None of this running around with its head chopped off business.

"Stewer" is much less depressing than "spent hen".

I own chickens--eight Buff Orpingtons who have the run of my rural property, amuse me with their personality and antics, and give me gorgeous eggs. This is just a reminder to everyone who cares about animals to at least choose free range eggs, or organic. It's very sad how miserable the commercial chicken's life is.
