    I don't understand why vegetarians can eat fish tho??? If it's inhumane to eat normal meat eg. Chicken, beef, lamb.. Why isn't this the case for killing fish and eating it???
    Vegetarians don't eat fish. As E's mum said, that is pescatarian. But it does tend to make it confusing for people to understand when people say they are vegetarian or vegan and start chowing down on something that isn't.

    Doesn't bother me, it's all meat.
    I care more about the animal being free-range than its age.

    Thanks for the clarification!! I have friends who claim to be vegetarian and they eat fish and other sea creatures! I'll have to correct them! DF and I have always been confused by this!!! Lol!

    I'm a bit ageist and sexist with my meat - males taste stronger, and the older the sheep/pig the stronger it tastes. I'm just not used to it. So I like young ladies!

    We generally kill hoggets....lamb vs hogget vs mutton has to do with their teeth, though a sheep has to be under twelve months old to be sold as lamb.

    That said, an old hen makes excellent stock.

    If I am honest, I am a hypocrite when it comes to meat.

    I remind myself of it all the time.

    I pretty much eat most 'normal' things and animals (sheep, cow, pig, chicken, seafood and eg no offal, weird animals or cuts).

    but i only like my meat to be 'pretty'. Eg no fat/gristle on my steak. And prefer chicken breast to thigh cos the thigh has too many fat/ugly bits on it, and not a huge fan of eating meat off of the bone.

    But then I think to myself, I cant be like that because I would never be able to kill an animal myself to eat it (except fish, I happily fish/catch eat ) , but I happily am fussy about eating it.

    So, what I am getting at is I dont mind what age my animal is, but I do care about it being humanely reared and slaughtered with minimal suffering. But I say that, but I'd have no idea the meat I eat would meat that standard, I guess I assume here in Aus we have strict standards that make that happen.
    Because I realise that I am eating something that has died for me to eat it, even though that is the general cycle of things.
