Why Is Chicken So Cheap?

When a whole rotisserie chicken at Harris-Teeter costs about the same price as two bunches of carrots, we should ask ourselves: "How is that possible?" Chickens, our health and the environment pay the price for the low price of chickens in the US. Ezra Klein, for the Washington Post, says: "... I sort of wonder how long we'll allow chicken producers to compete on low prices derived from incredible cruelty to animals, exploitation of illegal workers, and taxpayer subsidies to the corn industry. It's a pretty ugly scene, and the product eventually ends up on our plates."

The Bible tells us that cruelty to God’s animals is forbidden and that we are called to be compassionate and merciful; however, chickens are one of the most abused farmed animals and still we continue to support such industry. Unless we take a stand for what is right, we will see no peace in God’s Creation.
