    I'd much rather the odd feather.

    Though eating a chicken wing/leg where the bone inside it has been shattered will make me vomit.
    Yes I've had to do this a couple of times. Bought uncooked chickens, open them up to stuff and find half the insides still in there, and one of the organs, lodged under the skin on the outside by the neck.

    Didn't want to waste, so just cleaned it out and then stuffed it.

    Both DP and I have come from the bush. DP has no issues preparing his own food.

    There is more of a chance of them going to waste by me forcing myself to eat them () than if i just a) didnt buy them or b) give them to the kids/DP instead. I am physically unable to stomach certain foods, and that is laughable to you? Nice.

    Also i have kids, everyone put your hands up if your kids NEVER wastes ANY food you put on their plate

    ohhh i know right. Mine are shockers at dinner time.
    They get cereal or toast for breakfast and whatever i give them at lunch and they usually have a piece of fruit between those meals yet its a struggle at dinner time. Just when you think youve found a dish they like and they will eat a mountine of the next time you cook it they want absolutely no part of it. Grrrr. We have now got to the point of if you wont it then its bath story and bed. Slowly were getting better.

    No, i leave them on, because im a mean mummy.

    (ftr, i dont actually BUY chicken wings. If we have them its because DP bought them, and he cooks them, not me, im pretty sure he would pluck the feathers off)

    nope i dont pluck feathers. That was the whole point of this thread lol
    DH will pluck them if there super feathery (which doesnt happen very often) otherwise if its just an odd feather he has no issues just eating it. GAG!
    My DS is super picky i marinate the wings or buy them premarinated so the odd feather is sometimes hard to see i cook them up and dish them out. DS will look it over several times before deciding if he wants to eat it and he can spot a feather a mile away.
    My nan used to raise and kill her own chickens and we used to as kids watch how it was done. We got to know those chicken before they became dinner. Doesnt mean i particularly like or want to pick feather off chickens. And in this day in age i dont have too either
    I also refuse to cook and eat whole fish because my stomache just wont let me.
    I eat meat yes. Do i touch it yes but with gloves.
    Do i respect that it was an leaving breathing creature before becoming my dinner.... Yes i do.

    But some people just cant stomach that stuff and shouldnt be judged bad for it.
