Do u feel differently about eating baby animals opposed to adult animals? Or is it all much if a muchness? If you dont like eating baby animals, at what age do you consider the animal old enough to eat?
I was just reading about broiler chickens - the ones you're most likely eating if you buy/eat chicken - and although I knew they were mostly killed around 6 weeks old, I never really considered how they really are just babies.
I guess it's well known that lamb and veal come from baby animals ie
- Theres a few different labels of lamb which can be anywhere from a few weeks to a year old when slaughtered.
- Veal can come from calves slaughtered from just a few days old to around six months of age I believe.
Its just not something I ever thought about in depth and I wondered what most meat eaters think about it.
