|What an imprisoned chicken would see through their |
virtual reality headgear.
A more detailed description of a chicken's proposed virtual world is described here.
Interesting idea, but can we all agree that this is a bad solution to a bad problem that can more easily be solved by small flock, free range, pasture perfect chicken?
This crazy proposal has gone viral. Even the highbrow The Economist has covered this "important development", as they said,
"Chicken scientists have worked on a variety of ways to minimise the harm to chickens from this factory environment, basically all of which are horrifying to some degree. They include the breeding of blind chickens, which apparently are less bothered by cramped environments, or the production of headless chickens, in which part of the brain or the entire head is removed but the body is kept alive to fatten up and haunt the dreams of everyone who learns of the technique."Thanks for sharing your ideas.
Instead of decapitated chickens on life support, or virtual reality chickens, I vote for small flock, free range chickens.
I hope you do too.
