Chicken

Hi
How do you all feel about the latest scare and chickens? I must admit where I used to buy it I am very hesitant to do so now. Its a shame really cos I loved a chicken dinner! However Christmas will not be the same without a turkey.

Was thinking that perhaps in a decade or so kids will go to Zoos and say excitedly "Look theres a chicken/turkey/goose/duck" etc and be amazed to hear they used to be part of our staple diet!

Re: Chicken

Birds will migrate, the bug will spread.
Let's face it, man is running this planet into certain demise.
I sometimes think that it will take an extinction level event to kick start the earth into recovery.
God bless the children!

Re: Chicken

There are a lot of if buts and maybes with all this chicken flu and to be honest the press like nothing better than a huge scary horror headlines - it's what drags in the viewers and sells papers.

From what I gather that, yes bird flu will make it to this country, but probably not til next year. The worry with humans is that 'IF' it mutates with a human form of flu then it "MAY" cause all these deaths.

I didnt stop eating beef thr BSE and I wont stop eating chicken now. The only way you can catch bird flu is if you are in contact with a dying chicken/bird or freshly dead chicken that actually has the bird flu. If you look at the way chickens are kept in places like Thailand where the deaths have been, you can see that they live in very close proximimity, plus look at the way they are sold on markets. You have to remember that even if it does make it in to this country, we are a more "modern" country and are probably able to deal with it a lot more effectively.

Personally (maybe naively) I think I will worry about it "IF" it mutates and then only if it is the killer virus they worry about.
