The process of poultry making its way from the farm to the table is not something regularly investigated by those who enjoy chicken, turkey, and other types of poultry. If investigated, it's possible poultry would not be quite so popular. It's been said that if you love hot dogs, you don't want to see them being made. The same is true of poultry products, including chicken nuggets, spicy wings, and Thanksgiving turkeys. This perceptive book will look at how poultry is grown, processed, and marketed, from hatchling to tabletop fare. It also considers environmental issues, cruelty concerns, the locavore movement, and tips for teens on reading food labels and making healthy choices.
