Happy International Respect for Chickens Day

Pull out the chicken hats, today is International Respect for Chickens Day! Spread the respect one bowl of wings at a time. Then write your Senator and call them a chicken for not making International Respect for Chickens Day a national holiday.

My personal chicken story centers around my Hot Wing obsession. I first fell in love with chicken wings working at a short-order restaurant, delivering food during college. Baldy's had good wings and awesome hot wing sauce, and I would eat a wing or two from orders I was delivering.

Hooters wings have nothing on stolen wings.

If you are a chicken-hugger, here are some ways that United Poultry Concerns suggests you spend May 4th - International Respect for Chickens Day:

• Get on a talk radio show
• Have a Respect for Chickens Day celebration at your school
• Make love to some poultry
• Start an around-the-water-cooler talk about chickens
• Have a What Wings Are For discussion at your school

For the chicken-lovers, tell me how you like your chicken.
