well, i see room for improvement, i think. is it good to raise chickens in cage barely bigger then they are? diseases r rampant, and pain-sensitive things are subjected to, well, lotsa pain.

but i agree in that this isnt really much of a problem. theres much bigger fish to fry then chicken farms that treat chickens like shit... and if we fry those fish right, well, raising animals will probably be, by comparison, a most inefficient method of making food.
