I love lamb. It's one of the only meats I eat.
When I travelled Indonesia, I was offered a rice spirit which contained a whole, intact deer embryo...that definitely crosses the line for me in terms of 'young' meat.

I only eat beef and chicken really. I dont eat lamb,veal,coquelet or 'spring chicken'.
I know its odd, but the more I think something has a personality, the more likelyhood there is of me not eating it.
Chickens/cows/fish etc I dont see as having much of a personality, horses, kangaroos, cats, dogs, deer, whale,dolphin, I do so wouldnt eat them..
I couldnt bring myself to ever eat a 'baby' anything...

No difference to me. Type of animal makes no difference either. This is why I don't eat any of it.

I don't eat red meat and only eat free-range poultry but I would rather people ate baby animals than have them killed and discarded. In the UK there was a big push for people to easy veal so dairy farmers could sell their male calves rather than kill them.

Nope, not a problem. Meat is meat. You're killing an animal either way. Age doesn't mean that it's deserved any more or less respect.
I guess if I had the choice I'd prefer to use an older animal's meat but if I like mutton cooked well just as well as I like a good piece of lamb. The flavours are different for different ages so *shrug*.

The younger they are, the more tender the meat. But I don't think I could go a drink with an embryo in it! Are you supposed to chew it up when you finish your drink? Or swallow it whole?

The thing I was reading that inspired me to start this thread was a question from someone wondering why all the male chicks born in the egg laying hen industry have to be killed (I think they actually become pet food and fertiliser?) and why couldn't they just be grown into chickens for eating, the answer being that they are two different breeds (there are several, but anyway...) and the laying hens don't grow big enough fast enough to be financially viable for farmers to grow for meat.
So I think in summary if ppl eat more baby animals, it only creates demand rather than saving waste.
