Corey, every time you buy a chicken at the store in america how do you think it gets there? It's not magic. An animals dies either way so don't pretend to be better than the people in your new home when watching how they prepare their food. Those chickens probably get better attention and care than the ones in big factories in america.
Having said that, if I had to pick a chicken it would be wearing a collar and leash and living in my house forever, I guess, because nah bro.
