March 19th is Poultry Day
you're looking for something to do today then get a little closer to
some winged beasts because it's Poultry Day! You can pet it
you can eat it; it's up to you! Let's get right into
WHY IS THIS A
If you're wondering why today is a holiday all you have to
think about the many different ways that poultry has touched your life.
Yes, even if you're vegan I'm sure poultry has influenced you in some
way. Have you ever fed ducks or played with baby chicks? Well then,
there you go! And if you do eat meat or eggs then you've probably had
many feasts thanks to poultry products so the question really is, why
aren't you celebrating? Poultry refers to any type of bird
we've domesticated for their meat or eggs. So yes, of course, that
includes chicken and turkey. But you don't want to forget ducks or
geese. Even pheasants ostriches and emus are considered poultry.
take a moment and think of what your life would be like without
poultry. No fried chicken, no chicken nuggets, no eggs in the morning,
no ducks to feed at the pond, no geese flying overhead, honking as they
form a V. All the good things you can think of that poultry brings into
your life... gone... for a split second! Now be thankful that
were only imagining it!
So how can you celebrate today? Well, it depends on what
"side of the fence" you're on. If you don't enjoy eating
that has to do with animals then maybe you could just get a little
closer to some live poultry today. If you live in a rural
then go visit a chicken farm. Find a nice place that treats
chickens well and see how well they like you when you scatter feed
around for them. Watch as they bob their heads back and forth
looking for food. You might even be lucky enough to see some
chicks. Or you could go to a local river or pond and feed
ducks bread. Even wild ducks are so used to being fed this
that they're a bit fearless when coming in for a snack. And
you have a camera or video camera on hand then don't forget to capture
some memories with this winged creatures.
And on the other hand
you could go out to eat for a nice poultry-infused dinner.
up a well-loved dish whether it's chicken, turkey, goose or any other
poultry meat. Treat yourself to some fine dining today or
something for yourself or your family and friends at home. It
could be as simple as some eggs in the morning or as fancy as a roasted
duck. It all depends on what you have on hand and what you
to spend to celebrate today. You could even have an all you
eat wings night at your place with the guys (or girls). I
hard time resisting these spicy little meat snacks myself!
Regardless of what you decide to do today I hope your day is
centered around poultry!
