That was a great video. I also feel that the vegetarian diet thing is in response to the truly awful conditions in large poultry production houses. Also not everyone considers insects to be worthy of meat status (i am not one of them but that mindset exists). By raising chickens I've found they are not only extremely omnivorous but also cannibalistic. Has anyone else seen a dead or dying chicken being consumed by its flockmates?

I had a "discussion" in the market over a package of eggs that was labeled both "Free Range" and "All Vegetarian Diet". My argument was that it could be one, or the other, but not both!
But I don't have USDA Goobermint Certification so I can't call ours organic.

I think this is an excellent example of how chickens are not vegetarians. As part of my article on raising chickens, I talk about how I am uncomfortable with the idea of eggs being labeled with "vegetarian diet." About half of a chicken's natural diet is bugs! And sometimes mice and snakes.
