A kiddush Hashem from the kosher meat industry?

I know it seems impossible after the Rubashkin fiasco, but lo and behold a recent article in the JTA portrayed a good picture for the kosher meat industry from the daily plant life at Empire and I felt compelled to share this great kiddush hashem with you folks, it doesn’t hurt that the article was quite interesting regardless.

    That’s disgusting. Almost as disgusting as intermarriage between shiksas who think they’re Jewish and their black husbands. Wait–nothing comes even close to that. FREE RUBASHKIN!

    That puts them head and shoulders above most of the industry. Good for Empire!

    My chickens will never make it to Empire. They were purchased as week old chicks from Tractor Supply Co. Hand raised and greet me as I come out of the house each morning. When I feed them I look like that old woman that used to feed the pigeons in front of the NY public library lol. Their on my shoulders, head, pecking at my shoes. I can spend an hour feeding them along with the ducks that I also hand raised. They were all in cages in our kitchen until old enough to go outside. As I watch them each morning I marvel at how perfectly created they are. How well suited they seem. And how they have learned in their way to return the affection I show them. No they will never make it to Empire. They will all grow old and die here on Heaven’s Garden Farm in Montague NY. That is my Kiddish Hashem. I will care for these his beautiful creations. Thanks for reading.

    Not to pick on Empire, but if people saw the way Chickens and other fowl were raised commercially they might not eat Chicken. The conditions are like a concentration camp for poultry.

      No, concentration camps were slaughter houses.

        +1 I support ethical eating, but a knowledgeable Jew should know better than to compare the state of kitchen coops the Shoah.

    And just what is any commercial Chicken farmer doing? Raising Chickens for slaughter! They are put in cages where they can hardly move their beaks are cut they are fed a special diet so that they grow faster which ultimately shortens their lives. If they are hens they provide eggs for a period of time until…if Roosters their life is somewhat shorter as they are only food. It’s too bad Anonymous, that you don’t have the nerve to identify your self. And we could discuss this more, perhaps on Facebook. Where by the way you can find me. And while I used the term “concentration camps” I mean no disrespect to those that went through the Holocaust in any manner, or were victims in any way. I only made the comparison to show the difference between the lives of the commercially raised animals, and those raised here at our animal sanctuary. I welcome any comments, both in favor or opposed to contact me on Facebook.

    And here I thought kosher chicken factors left so many pin feathers because they were just lazy.

    No one is comparing animals with humans, however we are all sentient beings. No one deserves to be crushed inside a shed, in excrement, with no light or air (like a boxcar on a train). Please allow that for an animal, such treatment is a holocaust (notice I used lowercase h). Some of my rescue dachshunds have experienced similar treatment in puppy mills. They were lucky, they survived it. None of the chickens do….
